DPA made submissions to Christchurch City Council on the redevelopment of two playgrounds -  the Queenspark Playground upgrade and Avebury Park Playground renewal.

We would like to see all Christchurch playgrounds transition towards being built on universal design principles and with all equipment being fully accessible and inclusive to everyone, including disabled children and young people.

Our recommendations include the use of accessible play equipment, wheelchair user friendly water drinking fountains be installed, that picnic areas include tables with open spaces, and that at least one mobility parking space or pick up/drop off points be sited near each playground.
