Today is the official ribbon cutting for our new universal inclusive playground at Oak Brook’s Sandlot! Located at 1300 Forest Gate Rd., the playground brings children of all abilities and ages together to play. This destination playground has a baseball theme, decked out with baseball toppers decorating the posts of the Little Tikes Commercial Nu-Edge play structure, along with a baseball diamond design in the poured-in-place Pro-Techs rubber surfacing. This exciting inclusive playground is sure to make children of all abilities feel like they hit a home-run!
WGN did a featured segment about the universal inclusive playground that you can view here.
Parkreation was happy to team up with the Gurnee Park District and Gurnee School District 56 to open a brand new playground at River Trail School! Through collaboration, the park district and school district were able to share the budget and give back to the kids of the community with a larger playground. The kids watched the playground being installed from the beginning, and could not wait to start playing on it at the ribbon-cutting ceremony!
