Inclusive & Accessible Play Equipment

Inclusive design increases a play environment’s usability for people of all abilities. The goals of an inclusive and accessible playground are twofold: address the needs of the whole child, and create a space the entire community can use.

The Park N Play Design Difference

How we design inclusive and accessible playgrounds and spaces for our clients. For a full breakdown of our methodology, reach out to us!

Out of all the tens of thousands of playgrounds and parks across Canada, only a small percentage of them are inclusive, accessible, and designed for use by the entire community.

While it's easier than ever to get a cookie-cutter design for your upcoming project, it's harder than ever to build a playground or park that can serve the entire community for decades to come. We're on a mission to change that.

Most organizations have two challenges when it comes to building inclusive and accessible playgrounds and parks.

That's why we built Park N Play Design—to give organizations like yours a partner that you can trust to deliver a top-notch playground or park that meets the needs of those using it.

In the last twenty years we've helped thousands of organizations (like yours) design, build, and install 3000+ playgrounds and parks. I'd love for you to be our next success story.

A 6-Step Proven Process

The success of any project lies in the details. We take painstaking efforts to make sure your dream comes to life exactly as you imagined. We identify goals and objectives, outline a clear plan to achieve them and involve you every step of the way.



Let’s creatively brainstorm and prioritize the desired project outcomes. We’ll consider historical, cultural, and educational opportunities, explore accessibility and universal design, and discuss materials to minimize environmental impact.


Needs Assessment

Now is the time to determine the best site location and how to secure the property for the project. We’ll consider the number of children and adults who will use the space, how to create age-appropriate play, and any special requests. We’ll also review the project timeline and budget.


Preliminary Design

Let’s get input from key stakeholders and community
groups, including parents and children, to ensure
everyone is heard. We can help you host a design workshop or town hall meeting to brainstorm ideas and hone in on a central theme. This is the perfect time to review the project timeline, sequencing, and budget.


Final Design

During the preliminary design phase, we’ll provide early sketches and drawings to help determine the style of your new play space. Now it’s time to finalize the concepts. This is also when you’ll receive a final proposal with a budget, timelines, and responsibilities assigned to all parties.


Final Approval

Once the final design, budget and schedule are approved, it’s time to place the order for your materials.


Site Construction

This is where dreams become reality, and you see how all the planning pays off. We help coordinate an expert team of site contractors, certified playground equipment installers and play specialists to prepare the site, assemble all the components, and bring the play space to life.
