Inclusive Play Area Grand Opening Set for January 25

| Community | January 16, 2020

Finishing touches are being put on the City of Santa Clarita’s first Inclusive Play Area, which began development in 2019 at Canyon Country Park (17615 Soledad Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91387). The Santa Clarita City Council invites residents to join the City for a grand opening celebration at the Inclusive Play Area on Saturday, January 25, from 10 a.m. to noon.

A brief speaking program featuring the City Council and project partners will be followed by the official opening of the play area when those of all ages and abilities will be able to explore the variety of elements in the expansive western-themed space for the first time. The Inclusive Play Area includes a number of features suggested by residents throughout the public input process, including a dual-track inclusive zipline, sensory-friendly elements, accessible connections to existing facilities and large shade structures to protect visitors from the elements in the summer months.

The play area provides opportunities that welcome everyone, regardless of age or ability, to play, learn and grow together. The result is a place where residents and their children can go to have experiences that promote integrated play for all and develop physical, cognitive, sensory and social skills.
