Playgrounds often touted as built for “all abilities” include one or two small elements for kids with disabilities. Forest Park, however, could practically serve as a catalog for the options available in inclusive play spaces. A wheelchair-accessible ramp leads to a Sway Fun glider (similar to a seesaw) and roller slide, perfect for a gradual descent to a soft turf play surface that cushions any falls.

For the swing fans in all of us, two bucket-seat swings sit alongside the more traditional types. A forest-themed space attaches to the ramp-accessible play structure. Past the two-story spinning global motion climber, there is a bug-themed play structure best suited to the 2–5 age range. A cozy dome that looks very much like a ladybug provides a fun hiding spot, as well as a possible shelter for kids on the autism spectrum who need a quiet place to regroup.
