Marci: I’m Marci Moran I’m the director of community outreach and special events for Shane’s inspiration.

Marci voiceover: And we are here today at Beeman park at Studio City Recreation Center this is our fiftieth inclusive playground that we have opened.

[video: Tall large trees surround the playground area shading the children as they play. Two children play on a see saw in front of the playground structure. Camera pans up from a wood plank rope bridge to a custom designed hollowed out tree made to look like a treehouse. Side view of a woman and boy as they walk across the wood plank rope bridge. A woman pushes a young girl in a wheelchair down a ramped sidewalk.

Marci: So, this playground it was completely redesigned.

Marci voiceover: My kids used to come here when they were little, and it was not the best playground. I definitely wasn’t accessible for kids with special needs but now what’s great is we met with the community here in Studio City and talked to them about What they wanted to have in their community.

[video: A young girl slides down the roller slide. Her legs giggle as she slides down and she smiles. Side view of a woman as she pushes a girl in a wheelchair up a playground ramp. Camera pans across a large swing set were children of all abilities are swinging. Camera comes into focus on a young boy as he plays at a sensory play Marble panel. He holds onto a red sandbox shovel as he leans over to spin the marbles on the panel. A woman walks through the entrance from the wood plank rope bridge of the treehouse designed playground structure.

Marci voiceover: They did kind of a nature theme here and it has a lot of like wood stuff, so it was great to partner with LSI to create this playground. One of my favorite things it has is the OmniSpin spinner. When we were kids we had the merry-go-round and this is much safer and what’s awesome about it is that kids who need back support with special needs Can be seated in it and they still have back support while they’re seated.

[video: view of the playground structure with the custom dead hollowed out tree house design with slides and play panels. Camera pans up the hollowed-out tree that looks like bark pieces have fallen off of it. Camera pans up a sand play station designed in a log wood theme.

A man runs to push a group of special needs kids on the OmniSpin. Camera back to Marci speaking to the camera standing in front of the OmniSpin.]

Marci: So, they can spin around, and they can be a part of it so it’s great piece of equipment that’s inclusive.

Marci voiceover: One part of my job is that I help run My Play Club which is a community outreach program that’s free to the community where we bring children of all abilities and their families together at our inclusive playgrounds. We get sponsors like Universal Studios Hollywood or Disney to help sponsor an accessible bus, so we can bring kids with disabilities to the playground. We partner them with typically be able kids and they play together on the playground. Which is a great opportunity for them to eliminate their bias toward people with disabilities and teach them compassion acceptance and it’s just a great program and I love it and proud to be part of it.
