Swing, slide, spin, and smile—every kid has the same goal when heading to the playground. But, not all kids have the physical abilities needed to master traditional playground equipment. The good news? Many communities are taking everyone’s consideration when designing new play structures—allowing those with special needs to play alongside their peers. We rounded up our favorite from coast to coast, flip through to find one near you!
Jamie Beth Slavin Park – North Hollywood, Ca
When it comes to inclusive, circus-themed playgrounds, this North Hollywood fixture is a definitely a "Come one, Come all" experience. Built in partnership with Shane's Inspiration (equipment by Landscape Structures), this play space brings families together to enjoy concrete-sculpted zoo animals, accessible play panels, climbers, slides and even a chance to watch a show on the Big Top stage!
