JAKE’S PLACE ALL-INCLUSIVE PLAYGROUND
AT DELRAN’S COMMUNITY PARK
PLAY IS IMPORTANT!
When children play together they learn how to interact, make important choices, and to have fun with one another. Until Jake's Place was created many local children with disabilities were rarely seen at a playground because there was no way to join in the fun.
Build Jake's Place builds "playgrounds for everybody." Playgrounds where children in wheelchairs and other assistive devices can play along side others with ease. Even parents and grandparents with a disability can play and interact with their children or grandchildren.
JAKE'S PLACE ALL-INCLUSIVE PLAYGROUND HAS:
* A cushioned, synthetic surface that accommodates wheelchairs & other assistive devices
* Ramps for easy wheelchair access throughout the playground
* Various types of bridges, balance beam, & stepping circles to work on coordination & balance skills
* Various sensory & tactile play activities for learning
* Musical instruments
* Swings with molded bucket seats
* A wheelchair-accessible glider
* Zip line (coming soon - still fundraising for this piece of equipment)
* Various freestanding play areas throughout the playground
* Various facts posted on different subjects for learning
* Shaded areas, picnic tables, & plenty of seating
* Restrooms located at the snack shack
* Come visit the playground that truly benefits everyone!
