Inclusive Play Space
The inclusive play space features multiple play zones and accessible equipment designed for people with all abilities. Opened in 2016, the play space is visited by about 140,000 people each year.
It's not a dedicated space for people with disabilities; instead it's designed for use by all. It's a place where children, parents, grandparents and carers of all abilities and ages can play and socialise side by side. It is a place that improves community connectedness.
The project was made possible with the support of Touched by Olivia, community and business partners and the advocacy of the Disability Advisory Committee. The Inclusive Play Space is part of the Livvi’s Place Network.
