"Play is at the core of a child's development and health. It's important for kids to have access to play spaces where children of all abilities can learn and develop, side by side. When kids with and without disabilities have the opportunity to play together, barriers begin to crumble. By providing play opportunities for children of all abilities, we help them live longer, healthier, happier lives."
