Most parks and playgrounds are designed with able-bodied children in mind. Inclusive playgrounds ensure physical and social inclusion where everyone can play together.
What is an Inclusive Playground?
Inclusive playgrounds provide more than just access to equipment. They encourage play together between children and adults with and without disabilities. Inclusive playgrounds remove barriers for individuals who have limited mobility, sensory needs, visual impairments, hearing impairments, and those with special communication needs.
Why is an Inclusive Playground important?
An inclusive playground helps mold the values of empathy and diversity in our community.
People in our community begin to see the person first and the disability second.
Inclusive play encourages the development of friendships through close proximity and the sharing of a common experience.
The opportunity to interact with individuals with disabilities is set in a natural environment.
