Children with disabilities and special needs can often only dream about playing in a playground. Park Chaverim, Israel’s first accessible and inclusive playground, Established by Beit Issie Shapiro in 2005, gives children with disabilities an equal opportunity for recreation and fun. The playground brings children with different ability levels together to teach them how to play and have fun together while raising community awareness about the importance of inclusion.
