Once fully constructed our park will be the biggest inclusive and accessible park East of Toronto. There are countless public green spaces and walking trails throughout St. John’s where many residents can enjoy the outdoors at no cost on their own time. Easter Seals NL simply wishes to extend this concept to be able to reach the disabled community, by creating a park that is truly for everyone.
Phase I of our Easter Seals NL Park includes an accessible playground.
Phase II includes the construction of a pavilion with a fire pit, a BBQ event plaza with a seating area, and sensory gardens all per the Canadian Standard Association’s Accessible Design for the Built Environment.
Phase III will include constructing an outdoor rink/hardcourt surface area with team benches, transparent glass, ice-level doors, and an accessible viewing area with bleachers. It will also include a 2600-square-foot outbuilding used to store recreational and adaptive equipment for our Equipment Loan Program and Linda’s Equipment Crossing, which is free province-wide.
Our goal is to provide people of all ages with physical, cognitive, and any other disabilities with the opportunity to participate in programs and services that aim to build inclusion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
