Outdoor play provides children with the opportunity to explore their environment, have adventures and practice social and physical skills. Playgrounds are a great way for children to get outdoors to play and learn.
All abilities playgrounds
All abilities playgrounds allow children of all ages and abilities to have fun and challenging play with their friends and family.
These playgrounds use natural and built surroundings to encourage different types of play, such as active, exploratory, and social play.
There are 17 all abilities playgrounds in Queensland. Find out where your closest one is.
Many local councils are making their playgrounds more accessible to children with disability. To find out if a playground in your area suits your needs, contact your local council.
Many playgrounds throughout Queensland have a wheelchair swing that enables a child in a wheelchair or with a physical impairment to experience the exhilaration of swinging through the air.
