Boundless Playgrounds

Fall is here and there are precious few warm days left before winter rolls around again.  Why not take advantage of the season and check out a Boundless Playground?

Boundless Playgrounds’ mission is to “build truly inclusive playgrounds where children and adults of all abilities can play and learn together in a fun and welcoming environment.”  That means there are swings with supportive backs and accessible ramps to allow wheelchair users to climb up to raised structures.  The overall environment and set up of the playground invites children and families to play together regardless of disability.  Boundless Playgrounds are often easier for children with motor planning difficulties or decreased strength to explore and enjoy the space, even if your child does not have a physical disability which requires the use of a wheelchair or other mobility device.

We are lucky in the state of Connecticut to have quite a few Boundless Playgrounds. The Places for Kids CT blog lists 20 playgrounds around the state which include at least some aspects of the Boundless Playground mission.
