O’Hara Township Community Park

O’Hara Township, PA

When O’Hara Township’s Council decided they wanted an ADA-Inclusive playground for the park, they turned to their local Sales Representative, Steve Baker, at Snider Recreation. After many months of design and installation, the playground for inclusive play opened!

“By Land and By Sea” is the playground theme, including the popular pirate ship. The ship structure is “all-inclusive,” with transition steps, ramps, and surfacing. This public playground is accessible for all levels of motor disabilities and also includes a wheelchair-accessible motion cruiser.

Other equipment includes the inclusive freedom swing, a climbing wall, comet spinner, and water-themed spring animals. Many types of disabilities are addressed in this design. Autistic, visually impaired, and hearing impaired children will enjoy the interactive braille, music, and game activity stations alongside the other children on the playground.

Austin’s Place

Butler, PA

This playground was designed specifically for adult use! This was one of the most unique and rewarding projects Snider Recreation has had the privilege to design & install. Austin’s Place provides specialized 1 on 1 training for young adults who are moderately to significantly impaired.

Austin’s Place wanted an outdoor therapeutic center that would meet their clients’ specialized physical and developmental needs. It would also allow them to experience the joy found in playground equipment. Many were able to discover the thrill of swinging, sliding & spinning for the very first time.

Steve Baker worked closely with the founders of Austin’s Place to design an accessible and therapeutic play environment. The result is an enjoyable area that benefits every one of their clients.

The School at McGuire Memorial

New Brighton, PA

The School at McGuire Memorial came to Snider Recreation with a need for an all-inclusive play space that would encompass the needs of all their students. McGuire Memorial is a school that provides special education services for students with multiple disabilities or who are on the autism spectrum.

The design brought in a pirate ship-themed play structure that was loaded with fun! On board the ship, you will find viper and spiral slides, a cargo net, and a ship bow climber. To complement the pirate ship theme, there is a telescope, a ship board panel with a porthole, and a mast with a Jolly Roger flag! The pirate ship is connected to another play structure by a long bridge, a rock n’ roll slide, a balcony, a leaf climber, and a cruiser!
