Why Play for All

We believe that children of all abilities deserve to play, socialize and imagine together and to reap the many benefits such activities bring.

But for the growing number of children with disabilities in our area, including those with sensory deficits, most playgrounds aren't fully accessible or can't accommodate their needs.

That's why The Rotary Club of Bellevue has partnered with the City of Bellevue to help fund and build a truly inclusive outdoor play environment at the Bellevue Downtown Park.

The new Inspiration Playground will have a universally accessible design and feature sensory-rich play experiences and equipment suitable for all ages and abilities.

Providing opportunities for all kids to socialize and play together not only provides much needed exercise and unstructured fun, it also helps build understanding and acceptance

We now have an opportunity for the entire community to come together to build a destination play space. With your support, the Inspiration Playground will provide a welcoming place for active and inclusive outdoor fun — a place of PLAY FOR ALL.
