A new playground at Stoner Recreation Center

Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks, in partnership with Shane's Inspiration, proudly dedicated a new Universally Accessible Playground (UAP) at Stoner Recreation Center in West Los Angeles on December 4, 2008.

Stoner's new play area is the City's twelfth UAP and is approximately 6,400-square-feet. Features include a resilient rubberized surface, mister sprays, swing sets and "cool topper" shades. New landscaping, irrigation, benches and a drinking fountain were also installed.

The City's Bureau of Engineering Architectural Division with help from Shane's Inspiration, designed the UAP. The general contractor for the project was Malibu Pacific Tennis Courts, Inc. Funding for the $500,000+ project was provided by California Proposition 40.

Stoner's Universally Accessible Playground provides endless opportunities for children of all abilities to play together and brings the Department of Recreation and Parks one step closer to fulfilling our goal to open at least one universal playground in every Council District. There are currently six more UAPs on the Department's drawing board.

Stoner Recreation Center is located at 1835 Stoner Avenue in West Los Angeles, 90025. For more information on this location or the Department in general, please visit our website at http://www.laparks.org/ or call (213) 928-9200.
