You can make a difference by donating today to Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee. We are fundraising towards an all-inclusive playground and splash pad at Pewaukee Sports Complex. We are seeking a total of $1.5M and have commitments of $260,000 in our first two months!
All-inclusive playgrounds are designed to accommodate and provide a safe place for children of all abilities to play together. The design of these playgrounds and the equipment provided are specifically intended to allow children with and without disabilities to use it. As the name implies, all children and families are welcomed and accommodated by the playground. All-inclusive playgrounds invite individuals of all abilities join in safe, fun and welcoming play. These playgrounds offer learning, challenges and exercise in many fashions.
The splash pad in conjunction with an all-inclusive playground is a win for all children and families. Beyond the typical enjoyment of a splash pad, those using inclusive playgrounds often have sensory needs. Splash pads provide a wide range of comfort that allows children to explore. Features such as dumping buckets and ground sprays are known to provide a sensory-rich play experience in water for children of all ages and abilities. The splash pad will include different styles of equipment to actively stimulate individuals of any level and encourage children to experiment with new opportunities.
