New playground designed for children of all abilities


St. Johns County Parks and Recreation has announced the addition of its first-ever, all-inclusive playground, made possible by a community partnership. At the Field of Dreams Playground at Aberdeen Park, all children will have the opportunity to play regardless of their physical abilities.
The new all-inclusive playground expansion is customized with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible play. It includes an all-inclusive whirl, ADA swings, a sensory dome, musical pieces and cantata chimes for sound. The play areas are wheelchair-accessible with wide paths and ramps.

The playground is surrounded by mature trees and offers shaded areas and a pavilion nearby. Children of all abilities can experience endless creative play through motion, sensory and socialization that encourages everyone to come together.

The all-inclusive playground was made possible through the collaboration of St. Johns County Parks and Recreation, Northwest Tower Committee, the Field of Dreams Board of Directors, members of the Creeks Athletics Association, parents, coaches and volunteers.

Aberdeen Park is located at 1401 Shetland Drive in St. Johns.
