All Inclusive Playground Project

Give the Gift of Play so ALL Children
Can Play Together

Inclusive Playground

The Oak Lawn Park District’s Mission is to promote a strong sense of community by providing leisure opportunities and the preservation of natural resources that enhances the quality of life and wellness for everyone. One of many goals is to make our district more available to people of all abilities and needs. Oak Lawn is a population of close to 57,000. All but one of our 23 playgrounds is Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible. However, there is a big difference between something that is ADA compliant and what is considered truly inclusive for people with all types of abilities and challenges.

The Oak Lawn Park District was a recent recipient of a playground matching grant through Illinois Park and Recreation Association, Playcore and their affiliated GameTime and Cunningham Recreation. The grant will be used for an All Inclusive Playground project at our Columbus Manor Park, 99th & Moody Ave

It will be one of the first inclusive playgrounds
in the state of Illinois!

An inclusive playground will help us to continue our mission of enhancing recreational opportunities, not only for people with disabilities, but for the entire community.

For the inclusive playground to be as successful as possible, we are looking for the generous support from businesses, like yours, who understand the benefits our Park District has on the community’s quality of life.
