Post Budget allotted for sensory playground at Prescott Playground in Huguenot

from INSIDE BOROUGH HALL EMAIL NEWSLETTER JULY 25, 2017
Last week, BP James Oddo joined with Council Member Joe Borelli and
Borough Parks Commissioner Lynda Ricciardone to announce the allocation of $4 million in
taxpayer money for a sensory playground at Prescott Playground in Huguenot. BP
Oddo allocated $3.9 million, and Council Member Borelli allocated $100,000 for the project.
A sensory play area provides opportunities for all children, including
those with autism spectrum disorder and sensory processing disorder. Some of the
examples of play structures that can be included are: sand and water play for tactile
stimulation, bright and patterned shapes for visual, talk tubes and musical play panels
for auditory, play equipment such as swings and roller tables for cognitive awareness of
movement and behavior, and balance walkers or climbers for focus on balance and
special orientation.
We look forward to working closely with the special needs community during
the playground's design phase.
