Variety Alberta is Focusing 2017 on Accessibility and Inclusive Initiatives:

Variety Alberta is dedicated to advancing the health, quality of life and happiness of Alberta’s children with special needs through support, social inclusion, and community responsibility.

 

Accessible Playgrounds

One of Variety Alberta’s initiatives for 2017 is to work with communities throughout the province to ensure that new playgrounds are accessible from the onset and playgrounds that were not built with accessibility in mind have access to resources and funding so they can expand current playgrounds to include accessible and inclusive play design and features.

Starting with Variety Park (in south Glenmore park), we are upgrading and expanding the equipment to create a more accessible and inclusive play space for children with varying abilities. These include limited mobility, sensory challenges and cognitive disabilities.

Through funding, support, and community partnerships, our goal is to ensure that all children with special needs can be active participants within their communities and are not restricted from play or participation because the design of the space did not take into consideration their needs.
