Accessibility: Despite having no ramps, this playground is accessible in a number of other ways. Accessible flooring throughout the play area. There are a number of panels that are accessible from the ground level. There is also steps up to the climber and wide landings that will help kids with lower motor skills. There are a number of things that swing or spin for kids who benefit from vestibular stimulation.
