FAQ's for Accessible Playgrounds--Are They Enforceable?

FAQ’s for Accessible Playgrounds–Are They Enforceable?

As law, no they haven’t been enforced–yet.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. In 2000, the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board issued a final rule in the form of accessibility guidelines to serve as the basis for standards to be adopted by the Department of Justice for new construction and alterations of play areas by the ADA.–as from the National Program for Playground Safety website.

  • I just wanted you to know that I added your site to the blog roll on accessibleplayground.net. I really like your site.

    One thing I would add would be an “about us” to your page, so people would know why you are writing this blog and have a way to contact you. I didn’t know how else to tell you about adding you except for making a comment.

    Thanks for your great work.
