The Town of Chapel Hill announced the start of the planning process to develop and build an Inclusive Playground at Cedar Falls Park, 501 Weaver Dairy Road. As a good neighbor, lets share this information with not only our families, but with our neighbors, too. Why not attend and participate?
An Inclusive Playground is one that is welcoming, challenging, and fun for everyone. All of the Town’s newer playgrounds meet the minimum requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, however, this project is intended to far exceed minimum requirements in every aspect of design and construction. If successful, any child will have the ability to have fun without feeling excluded or limited by physical or developmental issues. More information is available. CLICK HERE
The planning process will start with a public workshop at the Chapel Hill Public Library. The meeting will be held in Room A from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 28, 2016. The public may drop in at any time during the workshop. Anyone interested in park and playground issues are encouraged to attend and to share their thoughts and knowledge. Children are welcome and encouraged to participate. Accessible parking can be found near the front door of the library along the driveway circle.
In addition to the public workshop, an online survey is collecting input about playground issues in Chapel Hill. Access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YN98G5T. The survey will be open until midnight, Monday, October 3, 2016.
