A Playground for All Ages and Abilities:
The existing playground equipment at Otumba Park has dutifully served the community for decades. However, recognizing the need for a more inclusive and age-appropriate space, The Playground Project aims to revitalize the park. The new playground will feature three distinct areas catering to different age groups: 6 months to 24 months, 2 to 5 years old, and 6 to 12 years old. By ensuring accessibility and incorporating elements for varied abilities, the playground will provide a welcoming space for individuals of all ages and capabilities.
Promoting Inclusivity and Accessibility:
One of the standout features of The Playground Project at Otumba Park is its commitment to inclusivity. The park will be ADA compliant, ensuring that individuals with disabilities can fully participate in the recreational activities. The project’s thoughtful design, incorporating the 6 Elements of Play, will make it a National Demonstration site—a testament to its innovative and inclusive approach. This designation will serve as an inspiration for other communities striving to create similar accessible play spaces.
Health and Social Benefits:
Beyond offering a space for play, The Playground Project has far-reaching benefits for the community. The park will be a free activity for families, promoting creativity, imagination, and physical activity, which can help combat childhood obesity. Moreover, the park will provide opportunities for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to engage with children through play, fostering social skills and facilitating new friendships. By bringing families together, the park becomes a vibrant gathering space that strengthens community bonds.
Enhancing the Community:
A well-maintained playground can have a positive impact on the surrounding community. It serves as a focal point for families and visitors, attracting individuals from near and far. The unique and innovative design of The Playground Project at Otumba Park will not only enrich the lives of residents but also increase property values in the surrounding neighborhoods. This desirable amenity adds to the appeal of the community for prospective homebuyers, contributing to the overall development and growth of Sturgeon Bay.
DoCo Vacation’s contribution to The Playground Project at Otumba Park marks a significant step towards creating a lasting legacy for the Sturgeon Bay community. With its inclusive design and age-appropriate equipment, the park will provide a high-quality recreation environment where individuals of all abilities can come together, make cherished memories, and form meaningful connections. By supporting this project, DoCo Vacation exemplifies its commitment to enhancing the community and making Sturgeon Bay an even better place to live, play, and grow together.
