Nation’s most inclusive park to celebrate grand opening Saturday in Palo Alto

PALO ALTO (KRON) — Where in the world can a child or adult in a wheelchair play side by side with everyone else, regardless of their physical abilities?

Opening this weekend in Palo Alto is a truly magical, new playground which — so far as we know — is the first of its kind anywhere.

Located in Mitchell Park, Magical Bridge Playground is the nation’s most innovative-inclusive playground, designed and built for visitors of all abilities, according to the magicalbridge.org website.

Built with land and seed money from the city, and some $4 million dollars in private donations, the magical treehouse and several other play stations go well beyond what’s required by the Americans with Disability Act.

KRON’s Rob Fladeboe has a sneak preview of this amazing place, which is open to everybody.

The Magical Bridge Playground is located at 600 East Meadow Street in Palo Alto. The grand opening is at 10 a.m. this Saturday.
