Santa Monica’s first universally accessible playground will provide an opportunity for children of all ages and ability to enjoy time at the beach in a way that might not have been possible before.

This will be a place for children to socialize with their differently-abled peers, providing a new light into the world of disabled children through acceptance.

The design concepts for the playground are available online at www.facebook.com/smbuap. The community is encouraged to view the images presented by the projection team.

A meeting to discuss the designs will be held on Monday, Oct. 3, at 6:30 p.m. at the Ken Edwards Center. The center is located at 1526 Fourth St. Input on design concepts will be received through Oct. 9.

“We have solid directions for this special playground,” project designer Katherine Spitz said. “They both take advantage of the fabulous setting we’ve been given to work with — Santa Monica Bay. We hope the community is as excited about them as we are.”
