The Variety Inclusive All Abilities Playground, is a sensory-rich environment that enables children to develop physically, socially and emotionally. An engaging place that provides the perfect level of challenge and offers opportunities to succeed. A place that goes beyond minimum accessibility to create play experiences that meet a variety of needs and interests of all children. Each deserves the opportunity to be a part of the community. Inclusive play goes beyond the ADA standards of playgrounds being accessible to children or adults in wheelchairs.
At an inclusive playground, children of all abilities can interact with each other and be active, be social, and belong.
Variety’s vision is to expand on our direct programs and build three inclusive playgrounds in the next five years featuring activities that are age and developmentally appropriate, sensory stimulating and challenging for all children. Our designs will strive to make environments more usable, safer and healthier for all. Our collaborative process engages government, community partners, and community needs to build a design that reflects our vision. We have thoroughly researched this project and are confident these inclusive playgrounds will enhance the lives of children and the communities in Georgia.
We are proud to announce the first Variety Inclusive Ability playground will be located at Piedmont Park in Atlanta.
Your generous gift will help build an inclusive playground, so all children have access to play. Together, we can make a difference.
