Disston Playground

Located in Northeast Philadelphia, Disston Playground serves as the recess yard, gym, and after-school hangout for two neighboring schools. The playground underwent a renovation through Philadelphia’s Rebuild program, with upgrades including new equipment, walkways and play surfaces, seating, an adult fitness area, landscape improvements, and updates to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Langan worked with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation on a comprehensive review and update of the standard playground reconstruction guidelines to address new regulatory requirements and incorporate lessons learned. We also helped design various playground areas and develop an asphalt loop track for trikes and an ADA-compliant walkway.
