Parque La Esperanza, located near the Government of Durango's main office building, offers an inclusive playground designed to welcome children and families of all abilities. The design includes an extensive ramping system, many activity panels to encourage interactive play and playground components that deliver various sensory experiences. In addition to the inclusive playground design, one bridge was personalized to mimic the famous Baluarte Bridge, the highest cable-stayed bridge in the world. The real bridge connects the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of Northern Mexico, while the playground bridge encourages kids all all abilities to connect with each other.

Playground aims to connect community members of all abilities

On land that was once home to a soap factory, Government of Durango together with Integral Development of the Family (DIF) began a project to turn the space into park land. The park, which is located near one of the main government buildings in downtown Durango, seeks to promote environmental awareness but also incorporate the urban landscape, and improve the quality of life of community members.

In addition to creating a recreation space for the community to socialize and be active, another goal of the park revitalization was to create an inclusive space to welcome individuals of all abilities.

“We wanted to create space in the community in which people of all ages and abilities can exercise physically and mentally, and develop together,” explained Teresa Álvarez del Castillo, president of DIF.

The three levels of government along with Álvarez del Castillo and DIF came together to bring this park revitalization to fruition. Their goal is to integrate people with disabilities with the rest of the world.
