This is an ongoing project with many updates as we work to spread awareness, raise funds, and educate on inclusive play.

The Inclusive Play Project Art Exhibition

In celebration of International Disability Day, The Inclusive Play Project is organizing a kid’s art exhibition! Artwork that is created by students will be displayed at The City of Kingston Accessibility Awards Ceremony. Volunteers will pick up any artwork on November 20th. We are encouraging students to get creative while showcasing a theme of “what does accessibility mean to me?”.

Looking to participate?

City Council Meeting! And Others

It’s been a whirlwind of meetings for Rachel Doornekamp and Sara Ogilvie as they have done presentation after presentation to spread the word about this campaign and get support across our community.

They’ve presented to one of the Rotary clubs of Kingston, with others to go. They’ve presented to the City of Kingston Accessibility Committee and tonight they presented to City Council to officially get the go ahead and support to use Shannon Park for our Inclusive Playground 🙂

Because playgrounds should be for everyone!

Filming our Promo Video

Last week we spent the day onsite Shannon Park and filmed hours of interviews with parents of kids with disabilities, kids and siblings themselves, parents with disabilities, special education teachers, and other people who work in this sector and are advocating for this park. It was a fantastic shoot and we are very excited to share why our LOCAL community needs this straight from the people who LIVE in this community. Thank you to Youman Media for entirely volunteering their time to create this video for us.

Here’s a sample of what we were up to!

Extend-A-Family Kingston is an official partner!

Extend-A-Family (Kingston) is excited to announce that we are officially partnering with The Inclusive Play Project to help our community build a FULLY ACCESSIBLE playground in Kingston! 🎉💛🛝

Once approved by the City of Kingston – Municipal Government, we can start raising funds to make this dream a reality! The proposed park will be right down the road from EAFK at Shannon Park! It will be open to the entire community and maintained by the City of Kingston!🌲
