Prescott Valley Parks & Recreation Commission seeks public's input on inclusive/accessible playground

 The Prescott Valley Parks & Recreation Commission, along with a number of residents, is working to select the design and amenities for an inclusive and accessible playground at the Granville subdivision’s new park.

The playground will include equipment similar in use to the newly upgraded playground at George Andersen Park. 

Equipment for an inclusive/accessible playground enables children of all physical abilities and comfort levels to play together. The space also enables caregivers of all physical capabilities to assist and play with their own children or those they care for. 

The Parks & Rec Commission heard this week from Play It Safe Playgrounds, which presented multiple new playground equipment designs that get kids of all abilities playing together, moving and interacting.

The Commission encourages residents to go online at https://www.bciburke.com/our-produc…/category/inclusive-play and view possible playground components. The Commission asks for residents' comments on the elements they would most like to see in the new playground. 

The Parks & Recreation Commission will meet again about the playground during a work study on Feb. 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Auditorium. Interested community members are encouraged to attend and bring their recommendations for playground components, or email the recommendations in advance to This email address is being protected from spambots.

A similar inclusive/accessible playground recently opened in the Phoenix area.
