Client: City of Ankeny Parks and Recreation department, Ankeny, Iowa
Designers: Outdoor Recreation Products and Gabriel Cotten, Landscape Structures playground designer
Goal: Create an inclusive destination to welcome children and families of all abilities
Solution: To create an inclusive play environment, a PlayBooster® playstructure with an extensive ramping system was installed. The ramps allow kids using wheelchairs or other mobility devices to get to the highest levels on the playground, and there are playground activities like the Rollerslide and Sway Fun® glider along the way. Set apart from the main playstructures are even more opportunities for inclusive play. And to tie in with the nearby Miracle League baseball field, custom baseball roofs were included.
