19 Inclusive Playgrounds for All Kinds of Kids

Trending Now


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!

Shiver Me Timbers Park – Lake Charles, La

After the old wooden structure was partially destroyed by fire in 2011, this playground was rebuilt to over twice its original size with the accessibility of all children in mind. Security fencing surrounds the park that is covered in a smooth surface, making it easy for wheelchairs to get around. The highlight is a 40-foot pirate ship with port holes, decking and ramps. The park also offers a spray pad to cool off from the afternoon heat.
