Milltown Community Playground

The existing playground in Milltown was opened in 1973. Following a successful application for CLAR funding in 2018, there are now plans in place to rejuvenate the playground.The new playground will be enclosed with a fence and there will be new safety surfacing and a range of new equipment to cater for children between the ages of 3 and 14. It will also include a new wheelchair accessible roundabout to help make the playground inclusive for all. We now need to raise the additional funding required from donations to complete this project. Equipment is ordered and works will commence on the ground in Spring 2019!

Inclusive Playground! When we undertook to redevelop the playground, one of the key objectives was to try and make the playground as inclusive as possible within the limited budget and space we had. We chose equipment with this in mind and in total there are 8 activities (9 if you include the nest swing) that are accessible to those in wheelchairs or with limited mobility. While some other playgrounds include a piece of accessible equipment such as a wheelchair swing these are often "inaccessible" because you need a special key to unlock it. They are also seperated from other children and do not promote the inclusive aspect where the user can enjoy the activity alongside their friends. In Milltown we have chosen our equipment carefully to try and address this🙂. Details of each activity below in the pictures. Please share with those who may have children with special needs or in wheelchairs.

So today is the day our vision of creating an "enhanced amenity where families and friends can gather, play, share ideas and build a sense of community" becomes a reality! We now have a safe and inclusive playground for the children of Milltown, and visitors to our beautiful village, to enjoy 🙂. We hope you all have fun. We are delighted to announce the playground is now officially.......
