Upper Kedron Recreation Reserve has received new play equipment and improved facilities as part of the Quirk Administration’s commitment to build an accessible and inclusive city. New interactive play facilities were built to accommodate children with special tactile needs to enable them to play alongside children without special requirements.
The footpath, bubblers and toilets have also been improved to accommodate people with mobility issues and a new swing has been built to provide people who require extra assistance to sit up with more support. This allows them to use the same set of swings alongside their friends and siblings.
“These changes ensure that children of all abilities can play together on the same equipment in an inclusive playground,” Cr Wines said. These changes are not only to help children play but also give carers with mobility issues (for example sometimes grandparents need more accessible toilets) the facilities needed. This is so Brisbane is a place where all people can fully participate in the life of the city.
