Wheelchair access BBQ

New Inclusive BBQ Area Enhances Community Space at 5th Street Playground

A fresh and inclusive addition has graced the 5th Street Playground and Adelaide Road junction: a modern BBQ station that embraces accessibility for all. Designed to accommodate both wheelchair users and the general public, this facility promises delightful outdoor experiences for everyone.

Thoughtfully situated, the BBQ and table are easily accessible for individuals using wheelchairs, as evidenced by the attached photos. The initiative was made possible through the generous support of Gawler Pharmacy, who contributed a $10,000 grant, and the Lions Club, who covered the remaining costs.

This project exemplifies the power of community collaboration and reflects the spirit of inclusivity. Beyond its functional benefits, the BBQ area stands as a symbol of unity, offering a shared space for memorable gatherings. The 5th Street Playground has taken a significant stride towards creating a more accessible and vibrant community hub.
