Travers Park 'inclusive play' presentation, tour set
SANDPOINT — The city is hosting a free public inclusive play presentation and playground tour in mid-May.
Jill Moore, a specialist from Landscape Structures Inc., will present information about inclusive play in the Sandpoint City Hall council chambers, 1123 Lake St., on May 16. The presentation will be followed by a playground tour of the Travers Park playground, 2102 Pine St.
Lunch will be provided for in-person attendees that RSVP in advance, and a virtual meeting link is optional for the presentation portion of the event, Sandpoint City Administrator Jennifer Stapleton said.
Moore will present information on inclusive playground designs and how they meet the unique needs of all children. Discussion will include information on the range of disabilities of playground users as well as strategies and tips on how changes, both small to major, to play spaces can make playgrounds not just welcoming, but engaging, challenging and therapeutic, Stapleton said.
Moore joined Landscape Structures in 2017 to add a voice of disability into the product development process, as well as inclusive design practices. With a focus on merging lived experience with universal design principles, Moore promotes inclusion and brings people with disabilities into the conversation.
This opportunity is sponsored by PlayCreation, Inc. who has generously offered to provide lunch for those who wish to attend in person.
