For five generations, Bay Beach Amusement Park has been a community destination for all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. While the City's playgrounds are accessible, following ADA guidelines, Green Bay's first all-inclusive playground at Bay Beach will enable everyone in the family to have fun, be challenged, develop, grow, and engage together. Developing currently unused space at the park will create new opportunities throughout the year for visitors to socialize, rest, play, and make memories.
For anyone unfamiliar with Bay Beach, the new all-inclusive playground will help improve the community's quality of life in a number of measurable factors. These include reducing childhood obesity, providing outdoor recreation and leisure activities, supplying hands-on education opportunities, and many others.
Play is an essential component in helping children develop critical social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills. These skills transcend the playground and lay the foundation for adulthood.
