Play equipment for everyone & colourful road barriers

IMG_1992I found more sound sculptures by Kim Bowman in a playground at Black Mountain Peninsula in Canberra (mentioned in this post). There were two rain wheelsgong drums and a sonic bench.

It turns out that there was lots more for kids who find it difficult to play with regular equipment – including a liberty swing that can accommodate wheelchairs and signposts that help children who have trouble communicating to share their feelings, what they want, or the piece of equipment they want to use next.

(You can see one of the sign posts in the video near the rain wheel. Thank you to the author of this post for explaining what they were as I had no idea!)
