Touch the Sky–Beverly School for the Deaf, 6 Echo Ave  The playground is open to the public when school is not in session.  The wide ramps and rubber surface accommodate wheelchairs. The bucket-seat swings are good for kids who need extra support. A slide made out of roller balls is designed for children, such as those with autism, who like touch sensations. One of the slides is made out of metal instead of plastic, which can be a hazard to children with cochlear implants, which aid hearing.  The equipment comes from Landscape Structures Inc.

Built so that all children, with and without disabilities, can engage in productive play. Check out the new bike rack that has been installed near the front entrance. There is an ADA approved portable toilet parked on the pavement and accessible to all!  We have also installed a brand new, bright red, ADA compliant Jenn Swing for smaller children with physical limitations that require a more secure fit.  We have named this swing ‘Charlotte’s Swing’ in honor of a precious girl who loves to visit Cape Cod and swing at Luke’s Love.
