  • Shakopee's All Inclusive Playground at Lions Park

    Shakopee's All Inclusive Playground at Lions Park


    An inclusive playground is intended to provide accessible, age and developmental appropriate activities that stimulate all children physically, emotionally and socially. Rather than one large play structure, inclusive playgrounds use smaller, individual components designed to fit different needs and provide unique sensory experiences. This includes the use of land forms to provide contour and challenges to the park, tunnels, group activities and animals to touch and find, etc. The playground’s surface would be poured-in-place rubber.
