Playgrounds are vital spaces for our children and communities to experience joy, connection, and belonging. This work will continue until the day when we don’t have to designate that a community space is inclusive. 'Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury... Play is a necessity.' - Kay Redfield Jamison
