Leveraging the innovative (and kind) spirit of Silicon Valley, Magical Bridge Foundation presents a new model to provide truly inclusive playgrounds and healthier public play spaces for all, regardless of ability, disability, size, or age. With more than 25,000 visitors per month flocking to Palo Alto to play, Magical Bridge is heralded as the nation’s most inclusive play space, with worldwide interest in replicating their model. In this session, the founders of the foundation will give insight into their success, expansion throughout the Bay Area (and the nation), and the extensive community they serve, including those living with physical and cognitive disabilities, autism, visual and auditory impairments, the medically fragile, and the aging population. Learn about their process and guidelines for success and understand how they infuse Silicon Valley innovation into inclusive playground design.

Learning objectives  

  • Learn how to leverage the success of Magical Bridge Playground to enhance the quality and quantity of outdoor play time in the communities you serve, going way beyond ADA standards.
  • Understand the success of Magical Bridge Playground and Foundation, and the broad community they serve, including those living with physical and cognitive disabilities, autism, visual and auditory impairments, the medically fragile, and the aging population.
  • Take lessons learned from mindfully-designed Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto and apply these processes and guidelines to create truly inclusive experiences in your projects.
