Braden and Friends Challenger Playground – Ste. Genevieve County, MO
In 2012, Jason and Sarah Schott had an idea to build an all-inclusive ball field and playground, inspired by their son Braden and the countless other special needs individuals who play ball Saturday mornings. To get started, they contacted Unlimited Play, our non-profit partner that specializes in the planning, designing, and building of universally accessible playgrounds.
One of Unlimited Play’s key principles of inclusive design is imagination and theming. Because of Ste. Genevieve’s strong history as a farming town on the Mississippi River, the playground team turned to Little Tikes’ Custom Design Studio to create a destination playground incorporating both a farming and river theme. A perfect combination of custom and standard equipment transform the space into an inclusive, imaginary wonderland.
Special features of this play space include a hay wagon, a wheelchair accessible glider, a combination hay tunnel/climber, a riverboat play structure, and ramps to provide access to the entire play area. Every inch of this play space was carefully designed to allow all kids to play side by side—encouraging socialization, cooperation, and understanding.
“Kids will just come up and talk to her [my daughter], but at other playgrounds you won’t see that happen,” one mother described of her experience at Braden and Friends Challenger Playground. “There’s just something magical about these playgrounds.”
Custom and themed playgrounds offer lots of benefits to kids and your community or organization:
Little Tikes Commercial has helped build many custom and themed playgrounds which have helped organizations and communities come together. Take the Del Valle Park in Lakewood, California. Designed around a decommissioned F3D-2 Skynight fighter jet, this airplane-themed park is a nod to the community’s history and a tribute to veterans while also giving kids a place to play and imagine themselves in the sky.
