The Kelso Community Hub outdoor space, officially opened July 2019, has been designed to provide accessible play for local children.
Accessible features of the space include;
- An inclusive spinner, allowing wheelchair access plus a seat;
- An inclusive boat swing – lay back swing which can be enjoyed by children unable to sit unsupported;
- A concrete slide which does not affect cochlear implants. The static electricity produced by plastic slides can damage the electrical components of an implant and erase programs;
- A network of paths around the facility and outdoor area create a great area for bikes and scooters, but also allow the space to be fully accessible by wheelchairs and mobility aids.
