P4PLAY – Designing for play combining Universal Design and natural elements in community playspaces

At a glance


Outdoor playgrounds are important places for children to play and socially interact with others (Prellwitz & Skär, 2007). However, children with disabilities often face challenges in accessing and using playgrounds (Moore & Lynch, 2015). In order to overcome these challenges, Universal Design has been proposed to design inclusive playgrounds for all children. Despite this recommendation, Universal Design is rarely applied in the design of playgrounds today. Thus, this doctoral project aims to add knowledge from the perspective of children, playground providers and experts in Universal Design to the design of inclusive playgrounds.
