Eaton RESA Opens New Playground for Students with Disabilities

The playground will serve students attending Meadowview School

Last week, Eaton Regional Education Service Agency (RESA) which operates Meadowview School, opened a new playground for students. Meadowview School, which has been in operation since 1974, serves students, ages 5 to 26, in Eaton County who have significant cognitive, physical or emotional impairments as well as autism spectrum disorder and traumatic brain injuries.

Over the last year, a committee was formed to create a new playground, that would meet the needs of the students. The committee worked directly with Meadowview staff to develop a plan for the new playground. Additionally, students provided input on the types of equipment they would like to have included on the playground. The playground, which features this new equipment, ADA compliant sidewalks and a basketball area, officially opened after a ribbon cutting last week.

“We did everything we could to include the students in the process of designing the new playground. The only piece of equipment they requested that couldn’t be accommodated was a real rocket ship!”, said Cindy Anderson, Superintendent of Eaton RESA. “Thank you to the design team, Sinclair Recreation, Meadowview staff and students and the Board of Education for making this new playground possible.”
