Design idea for designing an inclusive playground in a park

An inclusive playground design

WOW: The amazing, thrilling playscape attracts all ages and abilities with its richly varied, responsive play choice. The graduated play zones support both wild and quiet play types and behaviours, for young as well as older children and tweens.

STAY: Three zones with break areas invite long stays. KOMPAN’s 6 universal design principles guide a playscape inspiring children of all abilities to play and come back:

1. Accessible, inclusive routing

2. Access to relevant ground-level activities

3. Access to relevant elevated-level activities

4. Support thrilling or challenging play

5. Support social interaction

6. Variation in play activities

DEVELOP: The abundance of play choices ticks the boxes for fun stimulation of children’s physical, social-emotional and cognitive-creative development. The physical interaction with play equipment and peers support children’s life skills, their understanding of the world, their health and their happiness, playfully.

Let’s play

Joy of movement: motor skills, muscle, cardio and bone density
Joy of learning: curiosity, understanding of causal relationships and knowledge of the world
Joy of being together: teamwork, tolerance and sense of belonging
Joy of creating: co-creation and experimenting with materials
