Project: Rotary/Paralympic Play Park at Liberty Park

|||||||||| |||||||||| ||||||||||

Landmark Design joined forces with Salt Lake City and Salt Lake Rotary Club to create a new play area in Liberty Park that accommodates the special needs of children with disabilities and celebrates Salt Lake City’s 2002 Paralympic Games and its athletes. Incorporating the ideals of the Paralympics, this is a place where everyone can come together - able-bodied and persons with disabilities alike.

The playground was designed and developed with intensive involvement of the community, with particular care taken to involve nearby residents and children with special needs. This was culminated by Design Fest, an interactive workshop that was held on the site of the future playground that included opportunities for all to come together and explore design ideas. The playground was dedicated prior to the 2002 Salt Lake City Paralympic Winter Games, March 7, 2002, and has since become one of the most beloved playgrounds in the region.
