about boundless

Boundless is a place where children with disabilities can play in the same space, with the same equipment as all other children and have lots of fun without many of the usual barriers to play or inclusion. The playground caters for children and young people with vision, hearing and mobility impairments, as well as children with spectrum disorders.

 

Boundless Canberra incorporates innovations from playgrounds in Australia and internationally. These include:

  • equipment that can be easily accessed by children of all ability levels without being readily identifiable as ‘disabled access’ equipment
  • zoned spaces to cater to a range of different age and developmental levels
  • elements identified through consultation that reflect the local community, and
  • a commitment to social inclusion throughout the consultation, design, planning and construction of the playground, as well as a kiosk to be run as a social enterprise.

 

The playground is a destination attraction for national, interstate and local families. Located on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in King’s Park, Boundless has quickly become the newest national institution within the parliamentary triangle.
