The new Ballou Park playground is officially open for play and features equipment that meets the accessibility standards issued under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The new playground was designed by a group of professionals that include recreation, park maintenance, and therapeutic recreation professionals who specialize in working with individuals who have cognitive and physical impairments.
Some of the ADA-compliant and inclusive features of this playground include:
“We are excited to open this new playground for the entire community. Play is absolutely essential to good physical and mental health in children and adults,” said Bill Sgrinia, Danville Parks and Recreation director. “We look forward to renovating and replacing many more play structures throughout the community.”
A ribbon cutting is set for Friday, Sept. 30, at 12 p.m. at the playground site.
