WILLARD PARK - ROCKLIN
The City of Rocklin wanted their newest park to be designed specifically for the inclusion of participants of all ages and abilities. Willard Park is the first park of it's kind in the City. It features multiple inclusive elements such as rubberized surfacing, ramped entry, musical elements and other sensory rich pieces of equipment. There is tactile components with the Roller Slide and sand pit. Interactive Play Panels are just the right height for children of all abilities to experience tactile play as well. The Pull Along is wheelchair accessible and allows children to use their upper body to pull them along the equipment. The Accelerator Swing is built with a large disk and protective rubber bumper and made for groups of kids to use together. It helps activate and integrate the important sense of movement and gravity. The Ten Spin allows children of all abilities to join in the fun by either sitting, kneeling, or standing.
For a more passive park experience, park users are invited to pick a book at the newly installed little free library. This library was designed and crafted by a local eagle scout candidate, painted by the Rocklin High School mural club as a public art project, and is stocked/maintained by the Rocklin Friends of the Library.
