All Inclusive Playgrounds – In the News
This year St. Croix Recreation was fortunate enough to be published in the Landscape Specifier News for Northwoods Park all inclusive playground. This is a national publication whose subscriber base is focused on architects and those involved with parks & recreation plus all inclusive playground planning. Northwoods Park was the center all inclusive play piece of the magazine.
Our structure joined an existing ADA Wheelchair Softball and Baseball field and the city wanted a playground that would complement the ball field and allow all children to play together. To do this, we implemented double ADAAG access ramps and Burke turf. The double ADAAG access ramps allow two people in wheelchairs to use the ramps together side by side. This all inclusive playground was created to be integrated with an elevated concrete ramp boarder that connects the ground level with elevated play areas.
