Accessibility & Inclusive

Plan a playground for people of all abilities and ages

Playworld is committed to ensuring that every person, regardless of ability, has an equal opportunity to connect with others in the camaraderie of play. It's the spirit behind every play space we create. Here's how we can help you build an inclusive play space that makes it possible for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to come together through power of play.

Meeting ADA guidelines
Understanding the guidelines for accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the first step to creating an equal play environment. Playworld designs playgrounds to not only meet, but exceed those guidelines, including:
  • Providing accessible routes into, around, and within the playspace
  • Making all ground-level activities accessible
  • Achieving satisfactory elevated-to-ground-based play component ratios

Creating a truly inclusive playspace
Playworld can help you go beyond ADA guidelines to achieve the barrier-free principles of inclusive play spaces. Our Inclusive Play Design Guide has been developed by a group of independent play and child development experts as an inspirational and educational resource to help design great outdoor play spaces for everyone. The Design Guide offers a set of strategies and solutions to the challenges that face communities in their journey to inclusive play.
