This is the first fully accessible playground in St. John’s and once fully constructed it will be the biggest accessible park East of Toronto. The addition of phase two exterior work of our park will enhance accessibility for our current programs as well as allow us to grow and offer new programs and services. Phase two will include construction of a pavilion with a fire pit, BBQ event plaza with a seating area, and sensory gardens all in accordance with the Canadian Standard Association’s Accessible Design for the Build Environment.
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 wish to extend this concept to be able to reach the disabled community, by creating a park that is truly for everyone.
Our goal is to provide persons 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.LEARN MORE
