Owen’s Place is a universally accessible playground, designed for individuals of all ages and ability levels. The playground is the inspiration of Trish Gustafson, whose son, Owen, uses a wheelchair. Owen's Place is located in Victory Park, which is accessible through Rotary Park in Beavercreek.
The Tree House Village is Phase 2 of the Owen's Place recreational project, and includes ramps, swings, swinging bridges, boardwalks and a clubhouse. The Tree House Village, along with the existing playground offers more than an acre of accessible play and recreation.
The shadow play area with colorful panels and various textures was the first phase completed for Owen's Place. This provides an activity for visually impaired children to use their sense of touch. There are also two bench swings set at wheelchair height so individuals can access them easily.
Currently, construction is underway for for a playground. Fundraising efforts with the help of OP's all volunteer staff, community volunteers and businesses are ongoing to raise the funds for an accessible baseball diamond. Check out our progress on Facebook!
