Charles W. Longer School
Hollidaysburg, PA USA
To honor a 5-year-old boy who lost his life, his parents set out to build an inclusive playground at the elementary school he once attended. Working with their local playground consultant, General Recreation, the Hinishes determined what features were necessary and those they would include should they surpass their fundraising goal. The playground design was a fully-accessible PlayBooster® play structure, Sway Fun® glider, sensory play activity panels, the Rollerslide and Roller Table, plus all of the traditional playground pieces kids love. The Zack Hinish Foundation organized more than 70 volunteers who helped install the new playground over four days. The final result is the community's first inclusive playground that welcomes children and families of all abilities.
