Johnson Park April 3rd, 2018

Playgrounds today are held to higher standards than in the past. Not just in the realm of safety, but also in the areas of accessibility and flexibility. Wallace Group was honored to assist the City of San Luis Obispo in facilitating play structure improvements in Johnson Park in response to these higher standards. Going beyond safer play structures, our landscape architects replaced the sand with engineered wood fibar and re-aligned the perimeter sidewalks to increase the play area, which allowed for larger fall zones and softer landings. In addition to safety, ADA access ramps were installed and the play equipment was selected to accommodate a wide spectrum of ages ranging from 2 to 12 years old. These improvements allow the park to be inclusive to children of varied ages and physical ability. Johnson Park now stands as a safer and more inclusive playground for the neighboring families that surround it. Demonstrating  San Luis Obispo’s and Wallace Group’s continued dedication to serve the local community.
