Document Description
The City of Palo Alto in collaboration with the community based non-profit group The Friends of the Magical Bridge have formed a partnership to design and build a playground fully inclusive of all user groups in the community. This would be the first such playground in the Nation. The playground is proposed in an underutilized area of Mitchell Park and is approximately 0.8 acres in size. The proposed playground design is composed of seven play zones, with each zone focusing on a specific type of play. Access to the site is provided by the Charleston access pathway, a major bike path, which parallels the existing tennis courts and crosses over Adobe Creek via an existing bridge. As part of the proposed project, the existing bridge would be removed and replaced with an ADA-compliant structure.
