Universal changing tables are designed to support older children and adults with developmental disabilities, medical conditions, or other special needs that require incontinence care. These tables provide a private, safe and dignified space for individuals to manage their personal hygiene needs. The Centerville-Washington Park District received an $8,500 grant from the Brighter Tomorrow Foundation to install a powered universal changing table in the Activity Center Park family restroom, improving the park experience for visitors with disabilities and their caregivers. This new park amenity, located at the park’s shelter, is now available for use by park visitors.

“Restrooms ranked in the top three requested park amenities on our most recent community survey. By installing a universal changing table in the family restroom at Activity Center Park, we have broken down another barrier to providing park spaces for everyone to enjoy,” said Kristen Marks, Executive Director of the Centerville-Washington Park District.

A popular destination, Activity Center Park’s sprayground is currently undergoing renovation and is expected to reopen later this summer. The 22-acre community park is located in the heart of Centerville at 221 N. Main St. In addition to the sprayground, the park features an all-access playground with wide ramps, large swings, belt swings, infant swings and benches that sway. The park’s shelter has picnic tables and is a popular destination for children’s birthday parties. Activity Center Park also features three baseball diamonds, a half-mile paved multi-use path, pollinator habitats and six pickleball courts.
