Inclusive Playgrounds Playbook

After years of research and summarizing best practice literature, we are excited to share the Inclusive Playgrounds Playbook from Tim Ross, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, University of Toronto; Kelly Arbour-Nicitopoulos, University of Toronto; Ingrid Kanics, Kanics Inclusive Design Services, LLC; and Jennifer Leo, University of Alberta!

The playbook is structured around four key questions:

  • How do we start?
  • Can I get there?
  • Can I play?
  • Can I stay?

Ideas and tools are provided to help with various aspects of a playground’s development, including: community engagement, transportation, the design of the playground and its surroundings, services and maintenance, and more! The development of this playbook has received generous support from Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities’ Inclusive Play Spaces Project and their vision to build more inclusive play spaces across Canada.
