RGC Design assisted the Park District with site planning, playground design and equipment selection to create a universally accessible playground. The playground design features ramp access and below deck as well as ground level activities. The design fits seamlessly in between existing tennis courts and the community center addition.



The site is designed with multiple ground level accessible events in addition to ramp access to elevated events, to allow for universal access and multi-generational play.

The play area features a turf safety surfacing that meshes perfectly with the park setting. Fully accessible bocce ball courts are adjacent to the playground offering another family activity.

The Tony Bettenhausen Recreation Center Playground is a fun and universally accessible playvironment with activities for the whole family.
