Philosophy & Mission

Let's Build Inclusive Play Spaces in Kingston!

Because Playgrounds Should Be For Everyone.

Our Story

We are group of passionate community members who are working towards building an inclusive playground here in Kingston.  An inclusive playground allows children and adults of all abilities to play together and creates a fun, nurturing environment for everyone.  These playgrounds are accessible (e.g. rubberized surfacing, ramps and wheelchair rocker), but also have classic features you would see in a typical playground (e.g. slides and monkey bars).  

We are working closely with the City, and the proposed site for the inclusive play space is Shannon Park in the Rideau Heights District.  This park is an ideal location because it already has several accessibility features, and is close to the Community Centre with an accessible washroom.  A Canadian commercial playground company that specializes in inclusive playgrounds has provided us with an amazing design to get us started.

This page is to raise awareness about the project and also share fundraising initiatives as we move forward. We are currently waiting on somewhere for funds to actually be donated but the City is working on this. Please follow our page and spread the word to others if you support our vision!


What People are Saying

"Yes 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 We moved here from Edmonton last summer and I must say, we were spoiled with hundreds of incredible playgrounds and many of which were built specifically with inclusivity as it’s primary focus. I must confess, I was very disappointed with the playgrounds here but we’re making the best of it of course. That being said, I am so so very excited to see this initiative circulating!"

"I could see these spaces also being of benefit for teens, adults, and seniors with Mobilty needs if the equipment sizing could allow! The benefits of swinging span all ages 🙂"

"Even parents who have to drive their children to appointments from outside of Kingston itself. What a treat to be able to end the day at a fully accessible park!! Win!"

"Awesome initiative. It’s surprising that this area does not already have parks such as this. The world would be so much better if everything was Accessible and Inclusive. It’s always been one of those things close to my heart having worked many years with people who have disabilities."

Our Families.

We want to introduce you some of the families that this playground would support. This is about community. Our community should be integrated so ALL families can play. Because play should be for everyone!
