Everyone Can Play

Inclusive design

An inclusive playspace invites people of all ages, abilities and cultures to come together. 

Inclusive playspaces are easy to access, easy to move around, provide a range of play options and challenges, and have appropriate facilities in a comfortable environment. Inclusive playspaces encourage everyone to stay as long as they choose. 

A playspace is more than just equipment. It is the entire setting used and enjoyed as part of the play experience. An inclusive playspace utilises principles of inclusive design and accessibility, creating spaces people of all ages and abilities can enjoy.

Young people and the young at heart also benefit from playspaces. So inclusive design needs to consider more than the needs of young children.
