Inclusive Playground Elements

The acquisition of soft life skills like teamwork, cooperation, tolerance, communication, open-mindedness, and acceptance begins on the playground.  Play is a critical component of early childhood development for both able and disabled children.

The absence of inclusive playgrounds and specialized play equipment for children with visible and invisible disabilities limits a disabled child’s social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development leading to isolation.

We are grateful to Pilgrim's Pride (Pilgrims) and Rotary District 7680 for funding this project. It would not have happened without The City of Monroe's Parks and Recreation Department guidance on the proper equipment and where best to deploy it, and getting City Council support and approval. We thank our fellow club members who helped install one of two expression swings and the Sensory Wave Arch Transfer and spread mulch underneath both.  And last but not least to Matthew and his mom Vera who test-drove the swing for us.
