In 2012, Disability Connection recognized the need for a fully accessible playground for families in Harrison County. Through their efforts, a generous contribution by Kim Savant, District 2 Supervisor of Harrison County, and additional community friends, a completely accessible playground is now a reality for all. The Disability Connection Community Playground has a variety of specialized equipment designed for everyone to play, a lighted walking track, benches, accessible bathrooms, shade, and ample parking.
Specialized equipment includes: roller table (modified slide), single post swing with harness, fun panels especially designed for those autism, the omnispin spinner (a safe alternative to the merry-go-round), the oodle swing, and many more. This is truly a fully accessible playground, with equipment available for not only individuals with even the most significant disabilities, but also very small children who could not normally play safely on standard playground equipment.
“…We enthusiastically recommend…the Disability Connection Community Playground.” Phil Bryant, Governor of Mississippi.
“…your insistence for inclusivity and play value make (the Disability Connection Community Playground) the only playground in the state to include all of these fantastic inclusive and sensory components on one playground.” – Laurie Alley, President, Playscapes of Mississippi.
