Inclusive Playground Equipment for Public & Private Facilities

Inclusive Playground Equipment is an important consideration when you are planning a playground. Why does creating a playground that’s the inclusive matter? Because of inclusion matters. Every child deserves the opportunity to play, explore, and have fun out on the playground, regardless of their respective ability level. Research shows that both independent and group play are important to the health, development, and growth of all children everywhere.

And here’s the best news – the team at Carolina Recreation & Design is well-positioned to help you create the right outdoor play experiences and environment for fostering physical and social inclusion of children across the wide spectrum of ages and abilities!

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It!

Listen to what some of our many satisfied customers and clients have to say about their experience with Carolina Recreation & Design


I just built a daycare center and called Carolina Recreation & Design to work with me for playground equipment installation. They were great. The crew they sent out was very professional; they followed the timeline they promised. Great company to work with. The playground they gave me will make a lot of kids happy and safe.


Carolina Recreation & Design was very easy to work with when our neighborhood association decided to upgrade the features at the park. From the initial contact to the final inspection, it was a great all-round experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to install a commercial playground in their community.


Our church considers Carolina Recreation & Design a part of our family. They have designed and built three play spaces at our church so far. Carolina Recreation & Design creativity, along with their professionalism, make working with them a joy. The final product is safe, current to industry standards, and, most of all, a fun space for the children. We would recommend Carolina Recreation & Design to anyone interested in upgrading their play spaces.

Benefits of Inclusive Play Equipment for Children

If your organization values reaching out to families and giving play opportunities that leave no child behind, then it’s important to adopt the right inclusion philosophy when it comes to equipping your outdoor play space. What does true inclusion look like? It simply means giving young people with disabilities the same opportunities to participate in meaningful recreational activities as everyone else.

Here are a few benefits to implementing an inclusive playground environment:

  • A proper inclusion approach should lead to increased overall participation in play and recreational activities at your site
  • Through the utilization of inclusive design, you can create a facility where all children – regardless of ability – can play side-by-side
  • An inclusive play environment helps to meet the developmental needs of the whole child, including physical, cognitive, sensory, and social development
  • Research-based, carefully-crafted inclusive play products and equipment help to remove the barriers which otherwise prevent some children and families from being able to take advantage of your play facility

Choosing to create an inclusive play space says a lot about your organization, and it really benefits your greater community
