Sedley Spray Park

Sedley, Saskatchewan

Project Description

The Sedley Spray Park Committee formed with the goal of building a spray park, a new and unique recreational opportunity, for ALL the children in the town. The spray park will be built with accessibility as a primary factor.

The ground will be level and the components will have an adequate amount of space between them for easy manoeuvering. This will allow easy access for children in wheelchairs, and means that children with disabilities now and in the future will be able to enjoy a barrier-free recreation opportunity.

Project Team Q&A

  1. Why did you decide to break down barriers in your community?

    People who live in rural Saskatchewan don’t have a lot of local access to barrier-free facilities. We wanted to do our part to bring an accessible recreation opportunity to all the children in our region.

  2. How is this project going to make a difference in your community?

    There are children in our area who have physical disabilities who would not be able to access the spray park when it’s built unless it is accessible. We are excited to be able to advertise its accessibility features, and encourage surrounding communities to use the spray park as well!

  3. What’s the best thing about being a Barrier Buster?

    The best thing is being able to help children with disabilities play with their peers in a fun park with no restrictions.
