The new Thunder Junction All Abilities Park in St. George is a dream come true for children of all abilities. It’s an inclusive park where children can play in spite of their physical limitations.

Children with disabilities often cannot play in a standard play area – and can‘t benefit from the incredible social, physical, and emotional benefits that play provides. Notts Sport were proud to help the City of St. George build this fantastic new park and playground. The remarkable play space offers accessible and sensory-rich equipment that enchants and delights children both with and without disabilities.

The dinosaur themed park features playground equipment that is wheelchair accessible so that all children can enjoy the swings and the slides. Wheelchairs can also board the train which circles the park. Play areas surround a huge volcano as faux-dinosaur skull spills water onto a splash pad.

This universally accessible playground will give all the children in the community the chance to play, to grow, and to learn side-by-side.
