At Pacific Play, we specialize in the design, supply and installation of inclusive playgrounds for children of all ages and capabilities with a high degree of ADA accessibility. Design and installation of universal, inclusive playground equipment is our specialty. We supply ADA accessible inclusive school playground equipment, as well as for , parks, apartments and churches. We place a great deal of emphasis on providing equal access for children with various disabilities and design our equipment to maximize ADA accessibility. Boundary free designs using accessible equipment and surfacing capable of providing full ADA accessibility are our goal for each project that we undertake.
In designing an ADA accessible play environment, our designers work hard to create barrier free designs which foster interaction and socialization for children at all age and ability levels. From the early design stages to the finish, we strive to offer the very best equipment in the industry. In recent years, the U.S. Access Board has developed specific guidelines in order to ensure that children with disabilities have equal access to various play components. Please see the following link for more information regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines.
