What is Can-Do Playground at Milford?

Can-Do Playground at Milford is a Boundless Playground. In a nutshell, a Boundless Playground is an integrated play area in which all children, those who are 100% enabled and those with disabilities, can play together, interactively. The objective is to design an area that is barrier free, socially inviting and contains play environment groupings.

Can-Do Playground at Milford is a place where dreams are never disabled:
  • Challenging - Every child is challenged at the Can-Do Playground with multiple areas of sensory, physical and creative development.
  • Accessible - Over 70% of the play activities are accessible to every child who visits the Can-Do Playground.
  • Opportunity - The Can-Do Playground is an entire universe of new opportunity for kids with disabilities.
Can-Do Playground was designed as a childrens' playground to provide play and adventure opportunities for children of all ages and abilities. Play apparatus physically challenge the users of the playground.
