New Inclusive Play Feature in the Town Green Playground

whirl

Windsor, California (January 13, 2021) –The Town of Windsor is pleased to announce the installation of a new play feature in the Town Green Playground. The new “Inclusive Whirl” replaced the existing Merry-go-All. Measure M – Parks for All funds were used to purchase and install this play feature. This was a tax measure passed by Sonoma County voters in 2019 designed to improve our local and regional park system.  

The Inclusive Whirl provides ease of access for people of all abilities with its zero-entry design, allowing children to play together. The whirl surface platform is at ground level with no need for ramps or transfer mechanisms. It features bench seating (at transfer height), a large platform surface that exceeds the ADA requirement for turn-around space, and handrails for users to grasp while spinning. 

This is the first fully inclusive play feature for the Town of Windsor.   The Town will look for opportunities to include additional features in the future. Any questions, please contact Olivia Lemen, olemen@townofwindsor.com
