WE GOTTA PLAY TOGETHER
Belonging for young children is being in a place where they feel comfortable enough to play without seeking approval – or dodging disapproval – to explore without fear. To redefine their own space and to use the environment around them to create for themselves a sense of order, trust and structure.
Edmonton’s first totally inclusive and accessible indoor playground. Built for all children that advocates a “zero rejection policy”, where no one is left out because of a disability.
Developing The WGPT Centre
WGPT is embarking on a journey to build Edmonton’s first totally inclusive and accessible indoor playground.
The facility is proposed to feature an enclosed merry-go-round, musical elements for children with autism, panels with Braille for the visually-impaired and sign language diagrams for the hearing-impaired.
There will also be a swing and other playequipment specifically for kids in wheelchairs. The playground will feature colourful, springy surfaces that are soft, but solid, and facilitates wheelchair movement.

Let's All Lend A Hand
WGPT needs everyone from citizens, corporations and the government to jump on board and help make this dream a reality. Edmonton has always been a human rights leader and now we have the opportunity to show the province, country and the world how serious it is about helping disabled children.
