About the All-Together Playground
Over 4,100 volunteers, supervised by playground construction professionals from Leathers & Associates, built Utah County’s first all-abilities playground in just 6.5 days.
Playground construction ran from Monday, September 5th through Sunday, September 11th, 2016.
What is an All-Abilities Playground?
Children with disabilities often cannot play on a standard playground and therefore cannot take advantage of the amazing benefits that play provides.
An all-abilities playground is a space that provides inclusive play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities. These types of playgrounds are designed to promote the healthy development of all children’s physical, social, cognitive, and sensory abilities.
City Center Park is the perfect location for the All-Together Playground. Not only is the park centrally located, but it is also close to other amenities such as the Orem Public Library, restrooms, and ample parking.
The restrooms at the park are being rebuilt to accommodate wheelchairs and changing tables.
SPACE TO PLAY
The playground is over 19,000 square feet so that there is plenty of room to play.
