‘One Swing at a Times' goal is to install adaptive swings in Lititz Springs Park, that will be useful to all children, especially children of varied abilities and special needs. Adaptability is the first step to an inclusive playground. Although accessible playgrounds are all around the world for communities to use and enjoy, they are limited in certain locations. Inclusive playgrounds can be used by anyone and fun for everyone! Out of one thousand children between the ages of three and twenty-one, approximately eighty-five will have disabilities. The term “special needs” doesn’t have one example or definition, the special needs population is different from everyone else, but they’re also different from each other. Special needs children and people live everywhere, it isn’t location-biased. Lititz Springs Park is a well known park in the heart of Lititz, therefore my swings can be used for recreational purposes or from a physical therapy stand point. The overall purpose of adding adaptive swings is to give this population an experience that many of us take for granted.
Lititz Springs Park is a private park, owned by the Lititz Moravian Congregation and maintained by the Churches of Lititz, for public use. The Lititz Park Board approved 'One Swing at a Time' in March of 2019. To learn more about Lititz Springs Park, click to find out more on their website.
Take a look at Lititz Springs Parks future! Thanks to our friends at MRC GameTime, we're able to see the swings, ramp and surrounding mulch wall with clear detail. The orange swing is an Expression Swing™ Universal for ages from 5-12. On the right of the picture is an Expression Swing® Toddler for ages from 11-23 months.
