Time Lapse Video Of Playground Installation At Thrilled School

Sir Charles Tupper Elementary School in Halifax, NS, recently opened their new inclusive playground. To thank everyone who helped make the playground a reality, teacher Erica Phillips posted a great time lapse video of the installation and the opening. Check out the video on YouTube.

Located in the south end of Halifax, this fully accessible playground is the result of school fund raising, generous donations from community members, a provincial grant and the partnership of HRM (Halifax Regional Municipality). Enjoy watching the results of all these efforts in the video, and seeing the children play!

For information on the equipment at Sir Charles Tupper Elementary School, contact your local PlayPower Representative.

New barrier-free playground at Westboro Elementary School in Sherwood Park, Alberta

CBC News just broadcast a feature on the opening of the new barrier-free playground at Westboro Elementary School in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The article on the CBC website has video of the playground in use and interviews with happy residents and teachers at the grand opening. (http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/edmonton/sherwood-park-playground-opens-after-2-years-of-fundraising-1.3785030)

The playground features many of the amazing inclusive Little Tikes Commercial products available from PlayPower Canada. These include the Rock ‘n Ship, Revolution Inclusive Spinner, Generation Swing, Inclusive Swing Seats, Infinity Web, and so much more.

Check out our August 15, 2016 post that includes a link to the Parents Group blog detailing the process and finished playground. The blog also celebrates “all those people, businesses and groups who help us achieve our dream as they are true HEROES and deserve to be celebrated” and is “actively looking for HEROES to help build playgrounds designed with all children in mind; playgrounds with the right equipment & surfacing solutions to accommodate everyone’s needs.”

A few interesting quotes from the blog are:

“It appears that the Revolution Spinner is the biggest hit; there are always tons of kids crowded on it spinning around and around. I’ve heard that at recess time, there is always a line up. I’ve noticed adults swinging in the special needs swings since they are large enough to hold an adult which is cool; they have a good vantage point towards the one half of the playground. I’ve seen kids in them too; with the full back, it’s a different swinging sensation than a regular swing. I’ve noticed kids climbing around and through the Infinity Web, and digging in the sand below it. Other kids rocking in the ship that really rocks, or running through it and climbing through the port holes on their way somewhere else. They are climbing, and sliding like crazy too.”

“I also really enjoyed watching the Generation Swing in use. I have never seen one of these and I saw a dad swinging with his toddler and they both looked like they were having a blast. I wish these existed when my kids were little.”
