The brief for this playground was to provide an accessible multi-age combination unit, an accessible slide, an accessible swing and tactile elements.

Proludic selected play equipment that incorporates challenging, sensory and social play opportunities for children aged 2 to 10 years old and that is inclusive for children of all physical and intellectual abilities.

The inclusive and accessible Diabolo Multiplay unit (J38118)  features a wide variety of playful elements for younger children including climbing, balancing, sliding and manipulative play activities. Accessibility for children with reduced motor skills is encouraged by the presence of a ground transfer platform with large handles, a wide and secure stairway and a double slide. There is also plenty of room for carers to assist.

The metal Pod Swing (J441) with its large and comfortable seat offers a supportive surface for children with disability and enables easy wheelchair transfer. The large pod allows several children (or child with accompanying adult) to swing together. The Pod Swing combines motor coordination and sensory stimulation and provides lots of fun for everyone!
