Council approves accessible playground design for multiple age groups in Brethour Park

After reviewing several design options and considering feedback from the Saanich Peninsula Accessibility Advisory Committee, Council have selected a design option for a playground in Brethour Park. The park will include a play structure for school-aged children (5 to 12 years old) as well as a play structure for toddlers and pre-school aged children (1.5 to 5 years old).

The playground will also have a number of features that support children and caregivers with physical disabilities, including a fully rubberized surface, friendship swing, and a We-Go-Round, which will be the first inclusive merry-go-round of its kind on the Saanich Peninsula.

The estimated cost for the playground is $285,491. The playground is expected to be completed and open to the public by early summer 2024.
