A Dream Come True: Inclusive Playground Brings Joy to Children of All Abilities in Hayward

Mia Vasquez, the playground’s namesake, is a Hayward girl with severe cerebral palsy; due to her condition, park visits proved time-consuming and inaccessible. The preliminary design was conceived by her father to provide an unmet need for local park-goers: accessibility. Daniel came to the Recreation Department with a playground sketch on the back of a napkin, and with the help of Make-a-Wish foundation and Park District Foundation, his concept was brought to life.

Precision provided construction cost estimating services for this one-acre, all-abilities project. The design elements have an emphasis on beautification, accessibility, and inclusion, with themes that include cognitive, physical, social, sensory, and communication aspects of play.  A firetruck donated by the local fire department has been reimagined into a wheelchair-accessible play structure.  Precision’s work included maximization of ADA accessibility and functionality, coupled with a vast array of custom play elements such as rock walls, water towers, and ornate coastal themed sea sculptures.
