Park Circle is soon to be reimagined to fit the community’s modern needs. The entirety of the inner circle will be redeveloped and include the largest inclusive playground in the country, a new community building with classrooms, flexible event space, a history and archives repository, an artist in residence studio and meeting rooms, an inclusive baseball field, a farmers market pavilion, nature garden, open green space, and walking trails.
What is an inclusive playground?
All kids are created equal with the same desire and need to experience play. Play that challenges and inspires them physically, supports and stimulates them cognitively and facilitates an emotional and social connection. A well-designed inclusive playground welcomes children and adults of all abilities to a play experience where everyone can interact and play together.
All children means everyone. The need for play does not distinguish between children who are typically developing and children with disabilities. Everyone of all abilities needs play. And everyone means not only children with a physical disability requiring an accessible playground, but it also includes developmental disabilities like autism; children with sight or hearing impairment and children with intellectual disabilities such as down syndrome. Everyone also includes siblings, parents, grandparents, friends and other caregivers.

With this renovation project, North Charleston wants to move into the future by doing more than just checking the ADA compliance box. The City is dedicated to making this a space that truly embodies the meaning of inclusivity by creating a multi-generational space with everyone in mind. The power and benefits of play lay the foundation for the development of cognitive, physical, social, and sensory skills. This facility will be one of the most inclusive locations, not only in the state of South Carolina, but in the world. It is our vision to create an inclusive hub that allows every person in our community and beyond to feel a sense of belonging, growth, and acceptance when they enter this park.
As a partner in this project, sponsors will be supporting a community of people with various abilities, ages, and backgrounds. This is a historic moment for the City of North Charleston and as a sponsor, you have the opportunity to help build a legacy and a facility that will be enjoyed for decades to come.
