Development of an Inclusive Playground located at Cottonwood Park is a collaboration between the Richardson East Rotary Club and the City of Richardson.

Our Mission – To create a community playground that will inspire children and families of all ages and abilities to have fun in a safe inclusive environment. 

So what is an “Inclusive Playground“? Who better to tell you than, Taylor Lipsett, Three-Time U.S. Paralypmian, Two-Time Gold Medalist. Play the video where he tells you about the inclusive playgrounds. While you watch it, realize that the attributes described by Taylor also make it accessible by everyone with a physical limitation, such as Grand-parents taking their Grand-kids to the park.
