Shouldice Inclusive Playground

Shouldice inclusive playground

Inclusive playgrounds are meant to be engaging, fun spaces where everyone can play regardless of their abilities. These playgrounds challenge the most active children while also providing enclosed areas for quiet and creative play. The equipment is easy to approach and use by children and caregivers with mobility devices.

Inclusive playgrounds are located:

  • At a site large enough to accommodate the bigger format of inclusive playgrounds
  • Where there is access to a parking lot, accessible street parking or close to major transit routes 
  • Preferably near a public washroom and/or the route or pathway to the site is accessible.
