Barnwell School

Accessible Trojan Horse


www.JaimeVedres.comOur in-house design team specializes in create one-of-a-kind playscapes, but it’s not everyday we are asked to design and build 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 their wildest dreams 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  number of swings, including our accessible U-Swing, provide the motion kids love.

“Our team explored various options with the aim of creating a  spectacular design that reflected school pride and allowed students of all abilities to enjoy positive play experiences together.”

“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.
