This new playground enables children of all abilities to play side-by-side with their siblings, friends, families and caregivers. A wheelchair accessible surface also allows parents and caregivers with physical disabilities access to the playground. The playground includes features such as an accessible sand play table, rotating climber and saucer swings and is a legacy of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
The accessible playground is a partnership between the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Canada, Rick Hansen Foundation, 2010 Legacies Now, Province of British Columbia, Coca-Cola Canada and Shaneâ€™s Inspiration.
