Accessible Play Areas - “Advanced Session”

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Description

It’s been over 2 years since the new accessibility standards have been required for all newly constructed and altered play areas. This session will focus on a more “advanced” level discussion regarding issues such as the selection of suitable playground surfaces, applying the scoping and technical provisions to altered sites, and other more frequently asked questions. Attendees are encouraged to review the previous session on this topic (http://www.accessibilityonline.org/Archives/index.php?app=4&type=transcript&id=2010-12-02) and submit questions in advance for this discussion.
