Inclusive Playground Design

Liberty Mutual Inclusive Playground Design

Together with Liberty Mutual, Weston & Sampson designed a new, fully inclusive playground in the City of Plano at Windhaven Meadows Park. Our team worked closely with representatives from Liberty Mutual and the city to evaluate, research, plan, and design an accessible, active playground that includes amenities for a range of ages and abilities. Our work included coordination between project stakeholders, site visits/evaluations, play equipment research, design development, construction documentation, and observation.

This project includes working within the existing site characteristics (Texas prairie, edged with shade trees), community engagement/public participation, and designing opportunities for active and passive play that exceed accessibility guidelines/ requirements to improve quality of life. Our design is focused on meeting the five elements of inclusive play (social/emotional, physical, sensory, cognitive, and communication) and providing elements of interest and possibility for residents and visitors of all ages.
