Cedarburg - Centennial Park - All Children's Playground

“When children of any ability walk onto our playground they are instantly engaged.  The Landscape Structures playground speaks to every person, no matter what his or her ability level.  It says, ‘I am here especially for you.  Come try me out.  We will have fun together!  ~ Lucy Jane Miller, PhD, OTR, Found of STAR Center

This Landscape Structures design for the Centennial All Children’s Playground provides the Cedarburg community with a beautiful inclusive playground.  The use of universal design concepts are at the core of this design so that the playground enables and empowers the diverse population of Cedarburg with a fun and challenging place to play while improving their health and wellness and social participation.  The design includes a wide array of sensory play experiences from swinging/ spinning to climbing to quiet play to pretend play.  The range of sensory play opportunties in the playground design  provides children  at every development skill level with a “just right fit” as well as opportunities to risk and develop new skills while they play.  Many of the playground components encourage cooperation and socialization for “players” of all ages and abilities, these include the OmniSpin Spinner, SwayFun Boat and multi-person slides.  This design is truly multigenerational in that it provides…

… any typically developing child the chance to play for hours along side their peers of varying abilities…

…a huge variety of sensory play for the family with the child with autism…

…the young teen with spina bifida a place to show off his upper body strength by climbing into the Netplex climber to hang out with his buddies…

…the wounded warrior who uses a wheelchair with the chance to “rock the boat” for his children and their friends taking the whole crew out to sea…

… the grandparent who loves to watch their grandchildren play with a great place to share family time..

This Centennial All Children’s Playground design is a truly a place where all can play, learn and grow together!
