Adaptive Recreation Opportunities

Inspiration Playground

Inspiration Playground
Its Purpose
Inspiration Playground is a place that brings children and families of all abilities together to share play experiences, recreation and relaxation. It enables children with and without disabilities the opportunity to play independently on the same equipment.

A Place to Play
Inspiration Playground offers a play surface that allows for wheelchairs, walkers and support braces. Rather than inaccessible apparatuses, the playground supplies equipment that encourages activity and aids in overall childhood development. This free, outdoor play environment includes safe, state-of-the-art, sensory-rich structures that encourage integration and the development of cognitive, emotional, physical and social skills.

A Place for Families
Inspiration Playground has play opportunities that delight childrens imaginations no matter their age or ability. Similar playgrounds have shown that grandparents also benefit from taking their grandchildren to such playgrounds because of the sure footing and safety it allows for them and the children. By including the often overlooked children with special-needs as fully- participating community members, our community has set a standard for other communities to emulate.

Inspiration Playground is located at 2626 West Horsetooth Road.

Giant Friends Club
Play is a language that all children speak. Inspiration Playground provides a unique setting for integrated programs for children with and without disabilities to play and learn about each other. The City of Fort Collins Adaptive Recreation Opportunities program offers seasonal integrated activities designed to build understanding and friendships. The "Giant Friends Club," is a regular offering with crafts, songs, games, snacks and facilitated play on the playground. Special events, integrated sports and community involvement enhance the experience of Inspiration Playground.
