First universally-accessible tree house in a public space in California
This tree house is the first universally-accessible tree house in a public space in California. The tree house, a 2,500 square foot wooden structure, is designed to give children and adults of all ages and physical abilities an awe-inspiring experience — and a bird’s eye view.
The City of Torrance was chosen because of its community pride in its programs, schools, resources and parks; its diversity; its support for those who are physically challenged; and its public safety record. The tree house was made possible by a generous donation from the Annenberg Foundation.
The park also includes a Splash Pad. The water playground is 3,000 square feet and fed by a computerized system that is controlled by the users. There is a 4,000-gallon tank which goes with the pad. It will be open between the months of April – October.
Wilson Park has also added a Fitness Zone for adults! The equipment consists of several fitness stations that will support the overall wellness opportunities that are offered at the park. The walking paths allow users to get a great cardio exercise by circling the park pathway with each lap measuring .9 of a mile, now with the addition of this new Fitness Zone, visitors can further supplement their wellness program by working on strength development too. Visitors can also stay active with Pickleball courts available for use.
