A Handicap-Accessible
Playground on Lake Tomah

The Tomah branch of n.a.s.a. wants to thank all the businesses and individuals who donated money and time for the construction of our All Abilities Playground. A donor sign will be erected near the playground as a small way to recognize these generous donors.


n.a.s.a.'s Inclusive Park

Many generous donors assisted in allowing n.a.s.a to construct a handicap-accessible shelter with picnic tables and grills. This phase was completed in the summer of 2017. Phase Two was installing a handicap-accessible fishing pier and pontoon boat. That phase was completed in October of 2018. The final phase of the park was an All Abilities Playground with adaptive play equipment because everyone deserves to play.

The accessible playground is designed for all children but has a unique design that allows physically disabled children to play alongside non-disabled individuals.

The new All Abilities Playground is over 5,400 square feet in size and is located between the accessible shelter and fishing pier. All three areas are connected by paved, accessible paths. Accessible bathrooms are a short distance fom the shelter and playground.

What Makes a Playground Accessible?

Our accessible playground will include special playground equipment designed for physically challenged children and a unique surface that allows wheelchair access. This surface also provides cushioning in the event of a fall. Approximately half the cost of the playground will go into the poured surface.

The new accessible playground will have a footprint of 60' x 90' and will be located between the accessible shelter and fishing pier. All three areas will be connected by paved, accessible paths. The Inclusive Park is also located along the City of Tomah's walking path system, which includes over five miles of paved surface through the city.
