The All-Inclusive Playground

Here’s an idea we hope will catch on: The Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto, CA, is designed to provide play experiences for all children, regardless of ability or disability. With features including distinct play zones to accommodate everyone, fully accessible equipment, a wheelchair-accessible playhouse and tree house, and retreat cocoons for those needing a break from play, the playground surpasses requirements established by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Most important, says founder Olenka Villareal, it provides a place for the entire community to gather.
