Preston's H.O.P.E., a playground for children with all levels of abilities and disabilities, is located on the property of and operated by the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood, Ohio, and is open to the public.   This location was selected as it provides easy accessibility from all parts of Cleveland and surrounding communities. We are honored that the Mandel J.C.C. has agreed to host Preston's H.O.P.E. as they share in our commitment to providing opportunities for children and their families who have a wide range of abilities. The J.C.C. also has committed to maintaining the playground to the highest standards with the support of an endowment fund for maintenance that will be provided through Preston's H.O.P.E.

Specific components of Preston's H.O.P.E. include The Imagination Village, with make-believe houses that are connected by a Raised Walkway, Play Theatre, Sand Area, just to name a few, as well as  play areas with swings, tunnels, and slides that are appropriate for children from Preschool through School age.   Accessible restrooms have also been incorporated into the design.

Many of the playground's components were purchased through manufacturing vendors who installed their products while other items were custom designed exclusively for the Preston's H.O.P.E. project.  Design direction has been provided by RSA Architects, Inc.Dorsky Hodgson + Partners, and the landscape architectural firm of Cawrse & Associates. We also have had an evaluation of the plan by a professional playground architect. To view photos of the construction, click here.
