What child doesn’t dream about playing in a castle? The castle is incorporated into playground’s main structure and will feature 6-foot-wide ramps (wide enough for 2 wheelchairs side-by-side). The ramps lead through the arched grand entry and beneath the playground deck, so children can choose to explore either the “dungeons” or “grand halls” of the castle. Knights and adventurers can race up the rainbow-colored maze of stairs winding up into the castle turrets were they will find slides to make their quick escape from “dragons” or “jousting opponents”.
Dual Zip Line:
A zip line was one of the most requested items by the children. We want to make it double the fun! Our dual zip line will have two tracks with one disc seat and one ADA-accessible bucket seat. It will enable children who need additional support to fly 50 feet through the air alongside their siblings and friends, allowing everyone to experience play in a whole new way!
The barn with its whimsical architecture and decor, the barn is an imaginative play structure for little ones to explore as well as a reflection of Warwick’s culture and heritage as an agricultural community.
One of our goals is to give the children many options for imaginative play. Whether made out of blankets or lumber, children love playing in forts! Thanks to Play By Design’s whimsical design, this accessible fort will make a fun starting point for adventures.
Climbing Net Spinner:
The Climbing Net Spinner allows children to climb like “Spiderman” across steel-reinforced soft nylon ropes while rotating at a safe, controlled speed. The solid-deck floor provides an inclusive and safe place for children of all ages and abilities to join in the exhilarating fun, adding another dimension of imaginative, social and physical play.
Stainless Steel Slide:
Traditional plastic slides generate static electricity which can negatively impact cochlear implants. A child with profound hearing loss/deafness that depends on cochlear implants to hear, can now slide with their friends without fear of an electrostatic discharge. They also can experience the benefits that slides provide to the vestibular system which helps children develop a sense of balance.
Placed at ground level and with space for wheelchairs, our merry-go-round allows all children to benefit from improved balance, spatial awareness, teamwork and the excitement of spinning with friends!
Apple Rock-climbing Wall:
The children told us repeatedly that they love to climb! Our rock-climbing wall will give them a chance to challenge themselves as they scale a beautiful mural painted by a local artist leading to the Apple Tree House.
Maze of Stairs:
Once the children pass under the castle arch, they will be able to choose which way they want to clamber up into the castle. A maze of rainbow-colored stairs will lead up either side, giving the children many options to choose their own adventure or make their escape in a game of tag.
