The Rotary PlayGarden in San Jose CA is a welcoming and inclusive destination for children and their families, with a particular emphasis on providing a safe and enjoyable space for children with special needs.
The PlayGarden’s design encompasses not only standard play elements but also incorporates features such as adaptive swings, a wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round, kinetic art installations, sensory experiences, and much more.
The mission of the PlayGarden is to create an inviting environment where children with special needs can play and have fun alongside their siblings and friends.
Built in 2015 with a $6 million budget, this PlayGarden stands as a testament to the Rotary Club of San Jose’s commitment to the community during their centennial celebration.
The ongoing care and upkeep of this playground are overseen by dedicated staff and volunteers from the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy, supported by service partnerships and contributions from the community.
