The Make-A-Wish Foundation along with the Rotary Club and Arapahoe County Open Space were all funding partners for this all-inclusive park in Aurora. Designed by Urban Play Studio, the park suits all kids, no matter their physical capabilities or limits. In summary, redesigning Red-Tailed Hawk Park resulted in sensory-filled elements for all to love.
Colorado Hardscapes installed three parts at Red-Tailed Hawk Park;
- the sensory wall,
- the wavy walk,
- and sandblasted designs
We first constructed the sensory wall at our inventory bay and then transported it to the park location. While pouring the wall, multiple textures, colors, impressions and glass beads were added to appeal to multiple senses. In fact, the wall includes several elements, such as a custom Form Liner, Lithomosaics and MicroTop. The wavy walkway’s design is unique for children in wheelchairs; allowing them to feel the ups and downs similar to those of a roller coaster. The sandblasting ties into the decorative designs incorporated in the flatwork and playground surface material.
