Barrier Free Playgrounds

A few of Frederick County park playgrounds employ the design concept of the barrier free playgrounds. The idea behind barrier free is simple, make the playground accessible for all abilities.

Modifications are made to play equipment, walking surfaces, and other equipment in the park so everyone can play together. Every child, no matter the ability, can reach the highest play level. 

Some of the features our playgrounds have include rubberized surfaces or wood carpet play surfaces, and swings and bounce equipment with back supports.
