The Oak Lawn Park District's All Inclusive Playground and Columbus Manor Park completed renovations in 2017.
An inclusive playground helps the Park District to continue the mission of enhancing recreational
opportunities, not only for people with disabilities, but for the entire
community. In addition, it is the Park District’s hope that this inclusive playground
aids in developing attitudes that promote tolerance and appreciation of
differences; everyone can be together and have fun regardless of ability level.
Phase One renovations focused on adding an All Inclusive Playground. Features include a Sensory Wave Climber, Merry Go ALL, Shadow Play, Biggo Swing, Rocking Raft, Music Section, Net Climber, Bay of Swings, benches and slides.
Phase Two renovations consisted of a new play area at Columbus Manor Park that includes splash pad toys, a playground, and new pathways. Renovations were made possible thanks to a $300,000 playground matching grant through Illinois Park and Recreation Association, Playcore and their affiliated GameTime and Cunningham Recreation.
