WHAT IS INCLUSIVE DESIGN for PLAY and SPORT?
Inclusive Design for Play and Sport is primarily about all people having equal access to participate at the local playground, fitness park and misc., regardless of ability, age or comfort level. While people won’t always be able to participate in every activity, the goal is to offer everyone variety of activities at varying levels of difﬁculty in the same space.
InclusiviTY vERSUS AccessibILITY
Structures that comply with standards addressing routes, surfacing, ramps and ground-level activities are considered accessible. While many are accessible, not all are inclusive. We are impassioned to incorporate elements designed to address the emotional, social and physical needs of every one by building places that are both accessible and inclusive.
WHY iS iT IMPORTANT? Learning & Building on Life Lessons
Inclusion is an essential component in both the lives of children and adults because it directly affects our physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. While this promotes self-awareness, it also promotes community-awareness. Where people develop a better sense of value in themselves and others, while growing and learning from one another.
The beneﬁts of inclusion are virtually endless!
