  • The key initiative at Oak Forest Park is to build a playground for all abilities, the first accessible, inclusive public playground in central northwest Houston. The new design will allow those with disabilities to swing, slide, and climb along with family and friends. The playground area envisioned will feature fully accessible equipment and engraved pavers forming the Pathway to Play, with distinctive keystone recognition near the entry for major gifts. There will also be new picnic tables, park benches, a shaded area, and a painted art tile installation.
