Unlike most parks in Cincinnati, Crescent Park boasts its inclusion with spinners and rockers that wheelchairs fit right into. Designed to include everyone, the Community Parks, Recreation and Conservation Project opened to the public in fall 2022.

What’s considered an accessible playground?

According to ADA, an accessible playground is one that offers a range of play experiences to children of varying abilities. There must be:
  • An accessible path from the building or parking lot to the edge of the play area.
  • An accessible path from the edge of the play area to the play equipment with no curbs or edges.
  • Surfacing that complies with ASTM 1951 like turf instead of pea gravel or mulch.

Once a child is in the play area, they must be able to  access the play equipment by either moving out of their mobility device onto the playground structure (such as a transfer station) or by direct play structure access in their mobility device (such as a ramp).

Accessible Features at Crescent Park

The playground is fully accessible, meaning you can move from the parking lot to the playground to play structures with no bumps or curbs. Once inside the playground, children can take their wheelchairs directly onto the rocker, merry go round and multi-level structure.
