Kade's Playground, Herculaneum, MO
Kade's Playground is designed so that children with and without disabilities can play together side by side. All components of the play environment are wheelchair accessible by ramps, and the playground features accessible swings, a soft, textural poured-in-place surface, a fun theme, and a variety of musical instruments like drums and xylophones. The surfacing promotes the volcano theme with flowing "lava" and exciting, contrasting colors are used to mimic nature and promote a compliant play environment.
Colored lava makes a dramatic impression by extending the volcano theme from the equipment to the surfacing.
