Tools and materials
An estimated six million children in the United States have some type of disability making it difficult or impossible for them to play on traditional playgrounds. Regardless of abilities, all children deserve the opportunity to play. Boundless Playgrounds® helps communities create inclusive playgrounds that go beyond accommodating wheelchairs – they eliminate barriers for children with all kinds of disabilities: physical, sensory, cognitive and developmental. Each playground includes fun, challenging, sensory-rich activities that offer developmental advantage.
$100 makes it possible for Boundless Playgrounds to provide tools and materials to communities to build awareness, support and demand for their Boundless™ playground that will welcome all children. Boundless™ playgrounds are tailor-made for the way children are naturally drawn to play, plus they are universally accessible so everyone can play side by side at his or her own highest level of ability. No one has to leave behind support equipment like wheelchairs or walkers. Children with sensory disabilities (like visual or hearing impairments) or developmental disabilities (such as autism or Down syndrome) have lots to explore, too. What’s more, the very play activities included for children with disabilities are often the most popular with children who have the ability to play anywhere. Inclusion and diversity enrich life not just for those who have been traditionally excluded, but for everyone.
