Quincy Park Playground & Sand Volleyball Court Redesign
Arlington is getting its first playground that is designed for EVERYONE…including people with mental or physical disabilities. The new playground is part of the $1.1 million from the 2014 Parks Maintenance Capital Funds for the redesign and construction of the playground and sand volleyball court at Quincy Park. The playground and the sand volleyball court are located in the northeast corner of the park (see Existing Conditions map). Both facilities are extensively used by County residents. The intent of the project is to create a new playground that uses the principles of Universal Design. That is, to create a play environment for children without disabilities and children with disabilities. Play features, safety surfacing, pedestrian pathways, site furnishings, and supporting infrastructure are included in the project scope.
On July 23, 2014 staff introduced the project to the Special Education PTA, the Community Services Board for the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and the ARC of NOVA. The goal of this meeting was to introduce the project, gain insight and feedback from the participants, and tentatively schedule the first of two design development meetings (see meeting minutes).
Design development meeting dates, times, and locations will be posted here and at Quincy Park.
