Inclusivity in the classroom and on the playground is more important now than ever. The value of a smile on a kid’s face is priceless, regardless of background or ability. Schools, parks, and communities can create a play area where everyone can have fun, no matter their ability. With specialized commercial playground equipment from Zoom Recreation, communities in San Diego and the entire Southwest can incorporate inclusive play and welcome in more families!
An estimated 3 million children across the United States are impacted by a disability, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
If your community has standard playground equipment, this may mean that numerous children are not able to enjoy your play area. By having adaptive equipment that is ADA-accessible, your playground will be able to accommodate and welcome a large population of children and families who want to have fun too. No one will have to miss out when you have an inclusive playground!
Curiosity can get the best of kids. Part of the fun of exploring a playground is climbing the stairs or ropes to the top and adventuring around the structure.
Ramps with barriers provide a way for children who rely on a wheelchair or other mobility equipment to easily access the play structure. The ramps are wide enough to comfortably accommodate a wheelchair, and the railings provide a safe barrier for fall prevention. Ramps with barriers add ADA accessibility to playgrounds, allowing everyone to safely enjoy recess or a day at the park.
It can be freeing to hop on a swing and fly back and forth through the air. With inclusive swings, children who have disabilities can enjoy that same feeling with seating and harnesses designed to keep them safe while playing, including a galvanized chain for durability.
By either an inclusive swing seat or ADA-accessible team swing, these commercial playground equipment options are great for any park or community in San Diego or throughout the Southwest.
Playground components that are low to the ground are accessible by wheelchair. These not only will help your play area to be more inclusive, but the variety of products can inspire the creative sides of the kids and families visiting your playground.
Kids can talk to each other from across the playground, pretend they’re an announcer on an intercom, or have fun by playing make-believe that they’re getting a secret message from outer space.
