Keith Park All Abilities Playground, Weymouth
Children with disabilities will love the playground at Keith Park in Weymouth, Manurewa in South Auckland, New Zealand. The playground was specifically designed to cater to children with disabilities and to be accessible and inclusive for all children. The best thing is that siblings and friends can play together on all the playground equipment! This playground is the first of its kind in Auckland, and hopefully there will be more accessible playgrounds in Auckland in the future.
The playground has a wheelchair trampoline, inclusive net see-saw, accessible basket swing, wheelchair accessible carousel, talking tubes, musical sensory play, a wooden play tower with an accessible ramp and tube slide. The playground is fully fenced with soft safe fall surfacing on the ground to optimise mobility access and guide sight impaired children to the play equipment. Around the playground is a wide accessible footpath and there are two accessible toilets and an accessible drinking fountain.
