Inclusive Adventure Park, Ireland
Inclusive and Sustainable Adventure Park
An exciting opportunity to create a complete adventure park that is fully accessible to all and sustainable – a layout that can be copied for additional sites
A large inclusive adventure park in a rural environment, which will have a communal teaching and learning hub with accommodation pods dotted throughout the woodlands and meadows. Pathways and cycle tracks link all of the areas together. Luxury living pods will be in keeping with the rural environment and some will offer spectacular views across the valley. An enchanted wood is at the heart of the site. Five independent zones: Adventure; Music; Horticulture; Sensory; and Equine will provide accessible facilities for all disabilities.
An additional 400 trees will be planted and 5 acres of meadows will be sown, while a further 20 acres of parkland will be planted to drift easily into the landscape beyond. Nature and wildlife are at the heart of this inclusive adventure park providing a rich biodiverse and sustainable environment.
Areas for respite will also be provided so that family members, carers and friends can stay alongside the client. Full social and therapeutic horticulture services will be provided, as will equine therapy and music therapy.
This is a rare opportunity to design and create a fully inclusive adventure park template that can be re-used, adapted and re-jigged for additional sites. This requires long-term planning and consideration when it comes to designing each zone and the entire site using a holistic approach.
