The Everychild Playground at Orthopaedic Institute for Children is among the few accessible playgrounds in Los Angeles, where children with disabilities have the opportunity to play with their peers with typical abilities. While children enjoy the accessible equipment, parents and caregivers have the opportunity to meet, form bonds and share common experiences with other parents and caregivers. The Everychild Playground was funded by a lead gift from the Everychild Foundation to accommodate children with physical and/or developmental disabilities. The nearly half acre, wheelchair friendly, playground features sturdy foam ground cover to protect children from falls, colorful slides, tubes, bridges, swings, interactive puzzles, a quiet area, a dragon mister and lush landscaping for children ages 2 to 12. Through a joint use agreement with the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, the playground is open to the public 7 days a week.
