Accessible Playgrounds, Parks and Trails in Central Ohio for All Ability Levels

I’m excited to collaborate with Easterseals Central and Southeast Ohio to share this list of accessible parks, playgrounds and trails around Central Ohio!

Parks and Playgrounds are a huge part of childhood! These playgrounds, parks and trails make sure that fun is available to kids of all ability levels. With wheelchair accessible play structures, flat surfaces and swings and merry go rounds that are wheelchair accessible, these playgrounds are a gift to the community at large!

Check out this list and let me know in the comments if there are any that should be added!
