Playground Overview

The inclusive playground at Griffith Park is an exciting experience for all children, designed in partnership with Shane's Inspiration, that brings inclusive play to a new level. This playground celebrates the grand re-opening of the first Shane's Inspiration playground 20 years ago. A space ship and water-themed custom playground let's imaginations soar and accessible to all. Besides the main playstructure, there are many inclusive freestanding play elements including the We-Go-Round® which allows standing and sitting options and can easily accommodate wheelchairs aboard the flush base. The OmniSpin® Spinner is another option for players who love to spin. If back and forth motion is what you prefer, climb aboard the Sway Fun® Glider. DigiFuse® panels invite players and caregivers to interact with each other to learn something new, like sign language!
