Fri-YAY Featured Inclusive Playground!

Pinecliff was one of our favorite parks when my kids were younger. The playground area is accessible covering, so my kids didn’t eat the mulch or rubber tire pieces like at most playgrounds…Is that just my kids? It was large for their ages, so there was a lot of freedom to run up the ramps and down the ramps and up the ramps…yeah, you get the picture.

Let the Kids Play! aLL the Kids!

What is “accessible” and “inclusive”? Why are these features important in a playground? Accessible means to be reached or entered. An accessible playground is one that has gone beyond ADA to make sure people using wheelchairs can use the playground. Inclusive is ensuring that people feel that they belong, are engaged, and connected. An inclusive playground is designed specifically so people of all abilities can play together. All inclusive playgrounds are accessible, but not all accessible playgrounds are inclusive!
