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!

ValPLAYso Park – Valparaiso, In

This park underwent extensive renovations in 2014, and nearby kids have been flocking there ever since. It is completely enclosed by a fence, has an area for little ones under age five, and a separate section for older kids. Swing from the zip line, bounce on the trampoline and climb on the spider climber. Wheelchairs and strollers find it easy to navigate the poured rubber surface (which also protects against skinned knees). Extra wide slides and specially designed swings ensure that everyone can play together.
