About This Park

G W Carlson Elementary School is located at 51st street and Sunset Dr. in Fort Nelson BC.  It teaches K – 4. It has a number of play spaces spread throughout a large field and it has an accessible play space that has many features that would be accessible for a child in a chair.

Unfortunately the beautiful paved path that leads from the parking lot, is blocked by a chain link fence. From the school, a child would have to roll across the basketball court, climb a steep hill, cross the soccer fields, roll up another hill to access the accessible play space. It is not serving it’s purpose the way it stands.

Park Facilities & Accessibility Features

Access Route

This school has a incredible accessible playground with no access to it. One potential route from the parking lot immediately adjacent to the playground would be ideal if not for the chain link fencing blocking the access point. A child with a disability and their family would have a hard time accessing the play space. Download Full Accessibility Audit
