CO - Island Grove Regional Park
Aven's Village invites play for all at Island Grove Regional Park. This farm-themed inclusive playground, designed in partnership by Shane's Inspiration and Landscape Structures, welcomes individuals of all ages and abilities to learn, play and grow together.
Custom roofs, concrete-sculpted chickens, farm-themed activity panels including Talking is Teaching panels from Too Small to Fail, and custom graphics in the rubberized playground safety surfacing make this design a farm-filled play experience.
Even more, the OmniSpin® spinner, Oodle Swing®, ZipKrooz® Assisted, Molded Bucket Swing Seats in addition to various playground slides, climbers and more create a destination for entire families for hours of fun and active play.

and then a stone engraved with various names and donors, including Shane's Inspiration.]
