The K.A.S.H. Playground started as a community project to build a universally accessible playground. Project organizers raised private funds to completely construct and maintain a public, wheelchair-accessible playground at Mead Park in Stevens Point. There are over 1,000 special needs children in Portage County who have never been able to freely enjoy a playground - until now.
The K.A.S.H. Playground puts safety and convenience first, but not at the expense of the fun. It was built over a poured rubber surface, which is smoother on wheels, more gentle on falls, and lasts longer than wood chips. The playground has equipment that provides fun for all ages and mobilities!
