Through the use of Universal Design, Magical Bridge Foundation (MBF) has become a pioneer of innovative playgrounds and playground equipment for all individuals. In doing so they have created a national movement to shift playground design from “accessible for people with physical disabilities” to “genuinely inclusive for all people.” While the Playground feels magical to many, it wasn’t created by magic! This white paper articulates the design and development process that was used to create the first Magical Bridge Playground in Palo Alto, CA.
