Marshall Smith Inclusive Playground has been recognized as a National Demonstration Site (NDS) by Playcore for advocating for inclusive play and advancing recreation through research based best practices. High-quality outdoor play and recreation environments are essential to community health and wellness. Research indicates that when stakeholders are engaged in the planning process, evidence-based design best practices are implemented with the built environment, and supplemental programming is offered to further enhance user experiences, then positive outcomes occur.


Our new playground features equipment that allows kids of all abilities to join in on the fun, including child/parent swing sets, synthetic turf, sensory spaces, wheelchair ramps, and more! Our site is designed to align to 1 of the 5 possible NDS designations:
