Register Here (14)

Upper Providence Township is excited to announce the newest addition to our park amenities, a state-of-the-art all-inclusive playground. Our 16,502 sq. ft. all-inclusive playground is designed for children, teens, and adults of all abilities to play, learn, and grow together. With a mix of tactile, movement, climbing, visual, and auditory experiences, our new playground will offer ALL children a variety of sensory experiences at our park. From ziplines to fitness equipment, our playground will offer users over 80 play elements! You can expect to see adaptive and hoop swings, a rollerslide, a 12 foot climbing belt tower, spinners, a We-Go-Round, a Ninja Warrior Course, and much more! 

When designing the new playground, a lot of care and thought went into surfacing and shade elements. The surfacing in this playground is a seamless rubber surfacing called Pour-in-Place or PIP. This PIP surface affords seamless transitions to ensure that those using any type of mobility device or pushing a stroller have access to all the inclusive playground elements throughout the whole playground. Engineered wood fiber is used under the Ninja Warrior area.  Those who seek shade will find structures integrated into the play structures and standalone structures with seating.

The new playground will be located in Black Rock Park, alongside our Municipal buildings and nestled between ball fields with ample parking. Construction of the new playground will start in April 2022. Ribbon cutting information will be available on our website [uprov-montco.org or getupt.org] once the date has been determined. 

Stay tuned, we can’t wait to see children of all abilities using this new amenity!
