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.
