Tips for Visiting Wheelchair Accessible Playgrounds for Children Without Disabilities:

Parents of children who do not have disabilities: as parents of a child with a disability, we first want to say that we love that you choose to have your children play at playgrounds with our children. We hope that playing together teaches your children about empathy and respect for children with disabilities. I want you to know that it's okay for your child to ask what happened to my child. They can ask questions and we never want to create and environment where it's not okay to have open conversations around disability. We hope that you have conversations with your children that focus on everyone being unique and different, that some bodies move and look differently, but that it's okay and that it doesn't make it bad! We love interacting with you. As a side note, when I see your child playing with my child at the playground, I might cry, but it's only because I'm grateful. The end.

  1. The Weber School Foundation has recently built quite a few brand new all-ability wheelchair accessible playgrounds for schools in Weber County. I have been to Green Acres Elementary playground (in North Ogden, UT ) and it is pretty nice. The Green Acres playground is fully fenced in and has sidewalks that go from the parking lot to the playground for easy access. It has a solid rubber surface and a merry go round with high backs along with a few other fun features. I have also heard that Plain City Elementary and North Park Elementary in Roy also have the wheelchair accessible playgrounds but I have not visited them myself. All the public elementary schools are open to the public after school hours, on weekends and all summer. I really hope that more playgrounds will become inclusive to all abilities and kids. It kind of baffles me that there are so many kids that would love them and so few built in Utah.

  2. I am looking for a park that is fenced in for autistic children that like to run. I work for DSPD and my family Im looking for is in Taylorsville.
