Accessibility for All

Most of the Adelaide City playgrounds have clear and accessible paths of travel but when trying to access the play equipment one's efforts are hindered by bark chips. Whilst there is accessible play equipment for children with mobility impairment there are very few opportunities for parents with mobility impairments, particularly those who use wheelchairs, to interact with their able bodied children who are using the play equipment. Unley City Council has got it right as all their playgrounds have rubber softball which allows ALL people to access and enjoy the facilities provided. The bark chips impede interaction and solace some family/community members. The aim should be inclusivity.
