Thompson Peak Park Inclusive Playground
The playground at Thompson Peak Park is accessible to all users. Below are some of the features that set this park apart from the rest.
Accessible Whirl - A Merry-Go-Round experience with space and access for ALL users of ALL ages and ALL abilities
Kiddie Corner - Designed for our youngest users, this structure incorporates both visual and tactile features, a Double Glide Slide as well as a Basket Sway swing which is ideal for a lower range of vestibular action since it is tethered underneath. This swing also doubles as a cozy spot for a child to rest and still be in the middle of the playground action. The Unity Steppers which functionally link the structure to the Home Dome create the perfect layout for a game of The Floor Is Lava. They can also be simply a hang out spot for observers. Home Dome climber with its accessible entry point to navigate inside and see the action from within the "cave" is a main action hub with room to explore in, on and all around.
Amelia's Expedition - Designed for 5-12 year old users, this structure includes a series of smaller incremental inclines of 6” so EVERYONE can access the most exciting parts, the slides, one of which features the Slide Aside exit which helps to allow more time for a caretaker to assist a child while the slide remains active for other users. There are also musical elements and ground level activities around the structure along with a "secret" seating area beneath the 60” Hex Deck.
Arch Swings - One of most popular areas at any park is the swings. With a combination of toddler buckets, traditional belts, a harnessed Accessible seat and Unity Basket Swing, this feature aids in vestibular development and offers a full range for a group experience for users.
The unitary rubber surface or 'Poured In Place' allows seamless navigation throughout the playground spaces to help bring an ease to inclusion in this playground.
