The Zakkary Johnson Memorial Play Place

An Inclusive / All-Accessible Outdoor Play Experience
THE GOAL:

The goal of the Zakkary Johnson Memorial Fund (ZJMF) is to build a Universally-Accessible play experience and Miracle League ball field which will be equally fun to both children with and without disabilities. ZJMF has diligently worked towards this goal. A universally-accessible or all-accessible play environment is one that addresses all disabilities including physical, developmental, emotional and social disabilities. ZJMF has partnered with custom playground design-manufacturer Cre8Play of New Hope, MN and the Plymouth Community Foundation. Cre8Play is an award winning company known for their unique all-inclusive and all accessible designs that go far beyond ADA standards. The Miracle League ball field removes barriers for children with disabilities. Built smaller to scale, the field is not overwhelming to children with walking impairments. It’s custom surfacing is designed to accommodate wheelchairs and other assistive devices as well as help to prevent injury. All partners are committed to this project and share the same vision—to create an entirely unique play experience where children with and without disabilities will love to play, and where families will make memories.
