A new accessible playground has been installed at a recreation ground in Liverpool at the cost of £90,000.
Warrington Council worked with Warrington Disability Partnership and The BAM Project to provide the play area which includes a variety of specialist equipment.
The project was funded by a £50,000 grant from WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund with the council providing the other £40,000.
BAM Project trustee, Chatelle Hurley, told the Warrington Guardian: “As a team, we are so pleased with the results on the Liverpool Road park. We feel so privileged to have worked in partnership with some amazing people, that not only see our goals and believe in us at Team Bam, but bring these goals forward and turn them into a reality.”
“The future for families with multiple needs is going to be a bright one, especially where our local parks are concerned. ‘Play for all’ is our motto and that’s our main goal. Being a part of the process at Liverpool Road has been brilliant we have enjoyed every minute.”
Councils in the UK are increasingly investing in accessible play equipment as disability campaigners and local communities demand play areas which are accessible to all.
