The City of Bryant, Arkansas hosted a grand opening for the inclusive playground at Mills Park on August 14, 2018. This inclusive GameTime playground is a place where everyone in the community, including those with special needs, can come together and play—children and adults alike.
This new playground at Mills Park includes a fully ramped accessible castle themed play structure, sensory play and swings with adaptive seats. The play structure features a roller slide and many other fun play components. The play space is completed with poured-in-place rubber safety surfacing with an accessible sidewalk.
Dave Roberts, an urban planner for Crafton Tull, worked together with RJR Enterprises and Cunningham Recreation to create this unique custom playground. This is the fifth inclusive playground design Roberts has done, and he hopes to see more of them in Central Arkansas.
The play space at Mills Park creates an inclusive play environment that allows all people to participate in play, regardless of age or ability, and prove that play has no limit.
