Play for All Playground
Everyone loves the playground and being able to enjoy it with barrier-free access means people with all ranges of abilities can partake in the fun. Our ‘Play for All Playground’ is located near the front entrance to the Parkinson Recreation Centre and is an inviting space with equipment chosen to encourage intergenerational play, such as a grandparent with mobility challenges or a child with a disability. Some of the playground’s barrier free features include modified swings, climbing surface and play panels with musical instruments, overtop a safety surfacing to cushion falls.
This playground was made possible through a $50,000 grant from the Let’s Play initiative and $20,000 from Tire Stewardship BC. The Rick Hansen Foundation and the BC Ministry of Education were partners in providing the Let’s Play grant, making this accessible playground a reality for our citizens with disabilities.
