A new play area featuring inclusive equipment and designed for children with limited mobility is to be installed at a park in Bromsgrove, near Birmingham.
The design has been finalised and unveiled by the district council who have funded the inclusive equipment.
New equipment will include the experience of swinging and rocking within the play area, ‘spinning’ equipment, sound and musical elements, wheelchair sensory pathways, touch sensory items and plenty of colour. The park will also offer inclusive cycles.
The council confirmed recently that the installation process will continue until mid-July and that Bromsgrove’s Sanders Park will be closed during improvement works.
Parks officer Jackie Boreham said: “Thanks for bearing with us while the works take place. We are sorry for any inconvenience but it will be worth the wait once the extra equipment is in place.”
More councils around the UK are coming under increasing pressure to provide play equipment for children of all abilities and as such there is a growing demand for inclusive play solutions.
