Rotary Park in Livonia recently added the first Universally Accessible Playscape in the city, which officially opened in July of 2018. The playscape incorporates bright colors and a futuristic design. The large play structure includes many different play elements for climbing, running, swinging, jumping, sliding, and balancing. There is soft safety padding on the ground surrounding the structures.
Some of the other fun structures include the “Oodle Swing”, “Friendship Swing”, “OmniSpin”, and other climbers, and puzzles, all designed with inclusivity in mind.
Many different swings are available for children to enjoy at Rotary Park in Livonia, including ADA swings and a tandem swing that allows children to be face-to-face while swinging.
Volunteers across the Metro Detroit Community, including students from Stevenson High School in Livonia, came together to help with the construction of the playscape. Over $500, 000 was raised by Livonia Parks and Recreation, Livonia Rotary Club, St. Mary’s Hospital and other local organizations to sponsor this wonderful playscape.
