Harvesting Inclusive Play is…

a fundraising campaign for a universally inclusive playground. The Harvesting Inclusive Play Committee has partnered with the City of Chattanooga and the Kiwanis Club of Chattanooga, a 501(c)(3) public charity. This special playground has been designed to provide opportunities for children of all abilities to experience sensory‐rich play. It will be filled with fun, creative, farm themed playground equipment that will foster learning through imaginative play. All children can play together with their peers, neighbors, and family without encountering physical barriers to access or social barriers to inclusion. Families from all over Hamilton County will have the opportunity to visit an incredible playground where children of all abilities can enjoy shoulder‐to‐shoulder play. The playground will be located at Jack Benson Heritage Park in the East Brainerd community; an ideal location for such a project. The playground area will occupy nearly 15,000 square feet, and adjoining parkland with picnic tables, green space, and shaded benches will create an atmosphere the whole family can enjoy.
