Inclusive merry-go-round delivers spinning sensation to all ages and abilities

Expanding on its line of inclusive playground products, Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, has introduced the We-Go-Round®, a merry-go-round-like spinner designed to accommodate children and families of all abilities. There is ample room for wheelchairs inside the We-Go-Round, and strategic seating areas position everyone toward the center to share smiles, laughter, and conversation while in orbit.

According to Landscape Structures’ Inclusive Play Survey, more than 70% of parents strongly agree that playground equipment should be designed so all children can play together. That’s why the company continues to design commercial playground equipment and public play environments where children of all abilities and their families can play together.

“The We-Go-Round is the perfect example of what we call inclusive play,” said Randy Watermiller, vice president of product development at Landscape Structures. “This new take on the classic merry-go-round delivers an inclusive solution to achieve the spinning sensation for individuals using wheelchairs. Our design allows people of all abilities to sit and face each other. They’re able to engage with everyone around them and, most importantly, they’re able to play together.”

The patent-pending We-Go-Round is the perfect inclusive solution. The base is flush with surrounding surfacing for easy access for those using mobility devices.
