Check out this newly released book written by Melissa Martz. 

Inclusive Playgrounds: Play for All Children was written to bring awareness of what an inclusive playground is, and how they are the wave of the future. By 2025, all public playgrounds are to be fully inclusive, this includes parks, schools, and community centres. Ontario is well on its way to reach that goal, with the opening of several inclusive playgrounds in Elmira, Guelph, Port Hope, Orangeville, Brockville, Elora, Fergus, and the list goes on...

This book will give readers both the insight and inspiration of what goes into bringing an inclusive playground to fruition, and how they can bring an inclusive playground to their community.
