Disneyland Resort Helps Build First Ramped Playground in Anaheim


Last weekend, cast members from the Disneyland Resort partnered with volunteers from the city of Anaheim and Anaheim Family YMCA to build a new accessible playground at Barton Park in Anaheim.

The 300 volunteers worked together to build the 11th Disney-sponsored KaBOOM! playground in Anaheim in just six hours.

The newest playground includes features that allow children to play together, regardless of ability. The Unity Spinner merry-go-round includes seatbelts for wheelchairs, while the Teeter Tunnel teeter-totter includes features that make it easy for kids to transfer from their wheelchair. Braille panels were included for children with visual impairments.

Disneyland Resort President Josh D’Amaro said of the new space:

This event is a great example of why all of us at the Disneyland Resort are so proud to call Anaheim home. The collaboration between nonprofit organizations, the city of Anaheim, the Disneyland Resort and local residents is truly inspiring.

Here’s a look at how the playground came together:
