Evaluation of An Accessible Playground

This study focused on the impact of an accessible playground on the community and people's attitudes. The Zonta Accessible playground opened in the spring of 2001 in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. A pre and post study was conducted before the playground was built and six months after the opening. Parents and children within the community completed questionnaires regarding attitudes towards children with disabilities. Interviews were conducted with parents, children and a school principal focusing on the topic of inclusiveness and the impact of the playground on the community.
