The U.S. Access Board has issued final accessibility guidelines
for playgrounds under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The
Final Rule covers new construction and alterations to playgrounds.
The guidelines include scoping and technical provisions for ground
level and elevated play components, accessible routes, ramps and
transfer systems, ground surfaces, and soft contained play structures.
The next step in the rulemaking process is for the U.S. Department
of Justice to adopt the final rule as enforcable standards unde
the Americans with Disabilities Act.
