Brooklyn Park's All-Inclusive Playground
Because the city had already built the inclusive softball field, when it came time to replace old playground equipment, Brooklyn Park chose to go with the accessible here as well. The equipment was designed so nearly anyone can use and enjoy everything on the playground. To accomplish this, the surface was created with artificial turf and the playground equipment offers special inclusive features!
Todd Anderson Wheelchair Softball Field
in 2013, the city installed the first and only dedicated competitive wheelchair softball field in the five-state area. The field uses a color-coated asphalt surface and it is open to anyone to use for kickball, whiffleball, or other field sports.
