Exceptional play opportunities for all children

adventure+ have over 35+ years of experience designing and building Australian playgrounds that provide exceptional play opportunities for all children.

Inclusive and integrated play equipment provide play opportunities for children of all abilities, whether or not they have a total range of sight, hearing or mobility, or special sensory needs.

Accessible playgrounds are customised to incorporate ramps, tailor made play units and equipment, and multi-user elements that enable differently-abled children to explore their limits – and carers to help should the child need it.

Our designers start with inclusive play equipment and then move on to customisation to meet your specific requirements.

Designing inclusive play spaces

adventure+ works with schools, landscape architects to create inclusive play spaces around Australia. This can be from customising a play unit for an inclusive space, as well as providing a design that includes the associated works such as walkways and access.

It’s important to note that an inclusive play space is more than just including a ramp in a playground design. You have to consider for all children, even all visitors that come to the playground.

Customisation is one way we can help you achieve an inclusive playground that your community will be proud of by ensuring the following key requirements are met

Inclusive Play & Special Needs

The process of creating a customised inclusive playground is simple. We provide the design service free of charge.

adventure+

adventure+ offer accessible and inclusive customisation through:

  • Customised layouts
  • Added walkways, ramps, bridges
  • Play equipment designed for different abilities and ages

The process of creating a customised inclusive playground is simple. Landscape architects typically provide a brief along with a site plan that allows us to create a design that suits the space and requirements. When working with schools, we commonly visit the proposed site of the playground that allows us to assess the site and create a design. We provide the design service free of charge.

  • Sensory and tactile experiences
  • Colour selection
  • Variety of play types

Play panels & sensory play

Play panels offer a simple yet rewarding play experience that develops fine motor skills and play opportunities for children with limited mobility.

Swings

Swings provide a sensory experience and develop a child’s vestibular system. Swings also hold therapeutic benefits for children with special needs who enjoy the smooth back-and-forth motion.

Examples of accessible and inclusive needs swings include:

  • Nest swings
  • Gyro swing
Carousels

Spinning enables children to gain a good sense of body awareness and positively enhance their vestibular system. Children of all abilities can find joy in spinning with inclusive play equipment, and the long-reaching benefits extend to improved left and right brain integration.

Examples of accessible and inclusive carousels include:

  • Galaxy wheelchair spinner
