Overview

The community of Spanish Forks, UT had a need — an inclusive all-abilities park for everyone, regardless of their physical or developmental ability. A place where kids in a wheelchair could play alongside their friends and where a child with autism could interact with various sensory activities.

In September 2020, Spanish Forks got their wish when the Adventure Heights Park was unveiled on a 10+ acre piece of beautiful land with rolling mountains as the backdrop. The innovative park features a walking trail, sensory garden, zip line with a harness, an ADA-accessible splash pad, treehouse, wheel-chair accessible swings, pavilions, different types of slides, hands-on activities, a faux “gold mine”, and more! Local families with kids who have special needs provided input on the park’s design and various features — making this project even more special for the community.

The designers knew they needed a surfacing material that was safe for these families. They selected Surface America’s PlayBound Poured-in-Place because it’s ADA compliant and IPEMA certified, and they were confident that it would hold up for the heavy use it is expected to receive.

Key Challenges and Solutions

To make it even easier for wheelchair access, the park’s design called for no seams in the surfacing. Surface America’s skilled installers were able to meet this challenge and provided a seamless surface.

We are proud to have our PlayBound™ Poured-in-Place system featured in this innovative park that is sure to bring lots of families fun, no matter the age or ability. If you’re ever in the Spanish Fork area, be sure to check it out — you won’t be disappointed!
