Is your public playground in compliance with the new ADA law?

As of March 15, 2012, all public playgrounds must comply with the
2010 Standards for Accessible Design is permitted as of September 15, 2010, but not required until  the March 15 deadline. The Department has prepared fact sheets identifying the major changes in the rules.

For playgrounds (Sections 240, 1008)Play areas designed, constructed, and altered for children ages two and over in a variety of settings, including parks, schools, childcare facilities, and shopping centers, are covered.  Accessible ground and elevated play components, accessible routes, ramps and transfer systems (typically a platform or transfer steps), and accessible ground surfaces must be provided.

If you concerned that your public playground or public school playground does not meet this new law, contact your local parks and recreation office or school district office.

Or contact us and we can work together to ensure your playground is up to this new standard.   866-414-3625
