Article Summary: 

This article discusses the importance of designing accessible playgrounds for people of all ages and abilities. Inaccessible playgrounds limit the use of the space by parents, caregivers, and children with disabilities. The article recommends creating a curb-free route from the building to the playground, limiting drops and curbs between surfaces, and including handrails. It also suggests using a range of materials and activities, such as sensory or sound gardens, and elevated sandboxes to increase accessibility. Finally, the article recommends including resting areas with benches and access to water that have armrests, backrests, and transfer benches for wheelchair users.
