Accessible Playgrounds

Many of you have asked about playground accessibility in and around Carroll County. Although we haven't visited each of these playgrounds, we did a search and found some encouraging information.

The Recreation and Parks website provides a listing of "places to go/things to do" around Carroll County. While many of these parks will not be accessible to those who are more physically challenged, there may be family friendly opportunities that would be of interest to you.

Accessibleplayground.net is another great resource. You can search playgrounds and state parks within the state and learn more about accessible play. You will notice that Hailey's Wish Boundless Playground is listed. This is a community playground that is located at Carroll Springs School. It is open to the public except during school hours (8-3:30) and closes at dusk. It was funded by special donations to allow Carroll County's most special children a safe place to play.

Lastly, the City of Westminster, provides information about Recreation and Parks. King Park is listed as ADA (Americans with Disablity Act) accessible and Whispering Meadows Community Park is listed as being designed specifically for PreK - 6th grade children. We hope you find this information useful in determining your next family outing. Happy playing!
