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!

Owen’s Playground – Downers Grove, Il

After one mother saw her son’s wheelchair get stuck in the wood chips on the school playground, she made it her mission to raise money for an inclusive playground where her son could play alongside his friends. Located at Hillcrest Elementary School, this playground is open to the public outside of school hours and has double wide ramps to allow kids in wheelchairs full access. Sensory play happens at the musical station where kids can spin the rain wheel or bang on the drums. And, to complete the package, climbing, sliding and swinging opportunities abound.
