Park Pride Virtual Roundtable: Inclusive Play Spaces
Did you know that playgrounds have more diverse users than any public space amenity? Or that half of all playground visitors are not children? Research shows that play provides the foundation for how humans learn and connect, underscoring the importance of play spaces that are accessible to and inclusive of all ages and all abilities.
In this virtual Roundtable discussion, Meghan Talarowski will share insights on the importance of accessibility to play, types of innovative play spaces, and how to incorporate more inclusive play into local greenspaces. Attendees will leave inspired with ideas on how to reimagine play spaces in their local parks, schoolyards or backyards, for all ages and abilities to enjoy.
