Ireland adds new Inclusive Playground!

The Alton Town Council decided that if their policy is to include recreation for all children, they needed to develop playspaces that enable children with disabilities to play along side their peers.  The new playgrounds includes four seat see-saws, balancing beams, a hammock swing and a wheelchair swing.  There is also a merry-go-round’, call installation and sound play as well as a sensory garden to allow children who are visually impaired to identify flowers through smell.

Enjoy these two videos that show the playground in action:
