Liberty Swings for wheelchairs
The Liberty Swing offers people in wheelchairs the opportunity to experience the joy of having a ‘swing in the park’. They allow the whole family to go to the park together and join in the fun at the playground.
The Liberty Swing is enclosed and enables a wheelchair to swing from its frame. It is also fitted with a ‘pop up’ chair for those with limited mobility. The Liberty Swing is safe and fun and includes: ramp access, a wheel locking mechanism, safety harness, pop-up seat, and instructions for using the chair.
You will need a key to access a Liberty Swing. Ask your council about getting one, as your key will give you access to Liberty Swings anywhere in Australia.
To find a Liberty Swing near you check their website or contact your local council.
