Dr. Ken Sauer Elementary School

Multi-Faceted Fun

Creating a multi-age, multi-ability naturesque playscape that delivered fun and thrills for a large and diverse student population was the objective for this brand new school.

To meet these goals, our design team created a multi-faceted structure designed to keep younger and more timid students as well as bold adventurers entertained. An extensive overhead circuit with varying levels of difficult provides upper body action. The double-decker design creates an element of risk, incorporating climbing challenges as well as higher, more exciting sliding experiences.

To provide upper body action for younger students as well as wheelchair users, some overhead components were deliberately set at lower heights. In addition, a wheelchair ramp, combined with a variety of ground-level activities, allows students of all abilities to join in the fun with their friends.

Knowing how much children of all ages enjoy spinning and motion of any kind, our team added several spinning pieces including the accessible, multi-user Ocean Wave.
