Playgrounds For Everyone
A comprehensive database of inclusive and accessible playgrounds does not yet exist, but you can help create one. National Public Radio (NPR) is working to create a community guide to accessible playgrounds throughout the U.S. New federal requirements define playground accessibility as a civil right. And under those rules, playgrounds built or altered after March 14, 2012, are required to have wheelchair-friendly surfaces and equipment that helps kids with physical challenges move around. Add to the database and see what have been identified thus far here: Accessible Playgrounds
