Part of the NYC Mayor's Community Parks Initiative, the redesign of Bloomingdale Playground has been hailed as the "gold standard" for accessibility and inclusiveness in the city.
The new design transforms this outdated schoolyard into a vibrant, inclusive neighborhood park that welcomes children and adults of all ages and abilities.
The universally accessible playground was inspired by the spectrum of human ability and the idea that mobility and perception of all kinds are extendable by use of visual, auditory and mechanical devices.
