Park Circle is soon to be reimagined to fit the community’s modern needs. The entirety of the inner circle will be redeveloped and include a new community building with theater and meeting rooms, the largest inclusive playground in the Southeast, an inclusive baseball field, performance and event space, nature garden, open green space, and walking trails.
What is an inclusive playground?
All kids are created equal with the same desire and need to experience play. Play that challenges and inspires them physically, supports and stimulates them cognitively and facilitates an emotional and social connection. A well-designed inclusive playground welcomes children and adults of all abilities to a play experience where everyone can interact and play together.
All children means everyone. The need for play does not distinguish between children who are typically developing and children with disabilities. Everyone of all abilities needs play. And everyone means not only children with a physical disability requiring an accessible playground, but it also includes developmental disabilities like autism; children with sight or hearing impairment and children with intellectual disabilities such as down syndrome. Everyone also includes siblings, parents, grandparents, friends and other caregivers.
