Unique as a Butterfly

Common Ground brings everyone together, yet the design, layout and customized equipment is anything but common. The unique butterfly design of Common Ground ensures everyone can access all features to promote social interaction and a wide range of sensory experiences. Local parents of children with disabilities, a leading inclusive playground manufacturer, therapists and other professionals that work with children and adults with various disabilities have provided input into the design of the playground to ensure that Common Ground is fully inclusive and accessible for children with physical as well as developmental disabilities.

Infrastructure and support facilities required include a road, parking lot, utilities, restroom facilities and shelter. Play zones include specially designed equipment to promote social interaction and sensory experiences by challenging physical, social, emotional and cognitive development through meditative, interactive, exploratory and imaginative play. Features include a fencing enclosure, handicapped accessible restroom facilities, shade structures, walkways and grass areas.
