(Company name) Blue Imp
Accessible Trojan Horse
Our in-house design team specializes in create one-of-a-kind playscapes, but it’s not everyday we are asked to design a Trojan Horse! Barnwell School—“Home of the Trojans”—came to us looking for a customized playground design that tied in with their school identity and promoted school pride. Equally important, they needed a design that provided inclusive play experiences for a young student with mobility challenges while delivering fun for the entire student body.
Our team exceeded the school’s expectations with our massive, ship-shaped play structure. The focal point is the Trojan Horse which not only captures the school mascot, but doubles as an exciting climber. Side-by-side wheelchair ramps and accessible stairs allow easy access for all abilities. Accessible rings and an extensive overhead circuit provide upper body action while our accessible U-Swing provides a fun and secure swinging experience for all abilities.
“When we asked Blue Imp if they could create a Trojan Horse, we were just dreaming. But they did it!“ comments Chrystal Jensen, a member of Barnwell Parents for Quality Education. “The end result is better than we could have imagined.”
Since the new playground has been in place, the little girl who inspired the design has been able to join her classmates on the playground. Parents and teachers report that her confidence has grown tremendously as a result. Not only is Barnwell’s Trojan Horse the centerpiece of the school’s recreational space but it has also become a popular play destination for the entire town.
