The Play for All Abilities Park is a project that has been 5 years in the making and has truly been a community-wide effort. The park includes several pods each intended to develop specific skills for all children including Retreat Pod, Sensory Pod-Sand Box, Rock Band Pod, Rolling Hill/Performance Lawn, Sensory Pod, All Abilities Playscape, All Ability Swings and a Brushy Creek Village life skills area. The completed park is 51,000 square feet of outdoor fun for children of all abilities.
The mission of the park is to provide a safe, fun place to play and develop new skills for children of all abilities in Round Rock and surrounding areas. The Play for All Abilities Park will serve the more than 100,000 children of Williamson County with an estimated 7,945 children with a disability.
This large gated park includes a variety of play opportunities designed to stimulate and encourage the development of several skill sets such as gross and fine motor skills, social interaction, sense of discovery, creativity and strengthening exercises.
