In this 2000 image, as well as PHIL 9083, a father was shown seated in his wheelchair, while playing with his two sons, who were building sand castles in a publicly accessible sandbox. This sandbox, in a universally designed park, facilitated its use by all children, and adults as well, whether standing or sitting. Here, the father, who used a power-assisted wheelchair, had pulled up to the raised sandbox. This way, he was able to play with his children easily because knee space had been created over one cantilevered side of the sandbox. Designing recreation sites with the mobility challenged in mind, makes for an overall more user friendly environment for all, and is quite often made even more efficient from a utilitarian standpoint.
