Boundless Playgrounds

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 
Boundless Playground's mission is for every child, a place to play: Every child! Every ability! Everywhere!

Boundless Playgrounds® is the first national nonprofit dedicated to helping communities create extraordinary playgrounds where children, with and without disabilities, can develop essential skills for life as they learn together through play.

At the heart of Boundless Playgrounds' mission is the belief that playing matters for children of all abilities. We fervently believe that if all children play and learn together on Boundless™ playgrounds, where their common experiences and shared joy make a more lasting impression than their different abilities, they will grow up to be adults who celebrate diversity and welcome people of all backgrounds and abilities in their lives. This vision motivates us in our work every day.

Today, there are more than 100 Boundless™ playgrounds in over 20 states and Canada with dozens more in development. Our dream is to have a Boundless™ playground within reach of every child.

We provide materials, tools and services for communities building inclusive playgrounds; we raise awareness of the need for and benefits of playgrounds for children of all abilities; and we seek sponsors/partners to fund community grants for new Boundless™ playgrounds. While we do not manufacture or sell playground equipment, we do collaborate with playground equipment manufacturers who can offer Boundless Playgrounds Certified Models that meet our standards for providing universal access and supporting children’s development.
