The availability of inclusive playgrounds make a fundamental statement about how communities value meaningful play experiences for people of all ages and abilities. At GameTime, we believe in creating playgrounds that eliminate physical or social barriers and provide an environment where everybody can play together. We focus on both the physical and social aspects of inclusion and the development of the whole child.
Created by researchers, architects and play experts at Utah State University Center for Persons with Disabilities in partnership with PlayCore, Me2®: 7 Principles of Inclusive Playground Design is a comprehensive design guide for creating truly inclusive play spaces. It’s the basis for GameTime’s commitment to evidence-based inclusive design.
The Me2 Design Guide lists important details, data and research on the need for creating inclusive play environments, the benefits they bring to people of all ages and abilities and design elements to consider when planning a playground or fitness space. Me2 takes the same principles architects use for accessibility in public spaces and adapts them for outdoor recreation environments. It goes beyond the requirements of ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) and outlines how to provide true inclusion, so that communities can create spaces that are equitable, flexible, intuitive, accessible, compliant, active and comfortable.
