Corner of Tab Window Boundless Playgrounds

 

A Boundless Playground provides recreational and educational opportunities for children with and without disabilities.  DEP’s Office of Greenways & Trails is proud to facilitate the creation of Boundless Playgrounds® on the state’s greenways and trails—giving all children and all generations--the chance to enjoy the natural wonders of the environment as they learn together through play.  A Boundless Playground® contains elements that provide recreational and educational opportunities for children of all abilities. Simple differences include a poured-in-place rubber surface, ramps on the play sets, elevated sand table and activity panels and swings and bouncers with high-back support. 

With the generous support of The Felburn Foundation, the following Boundless Playgrounds® have been built by DEP’s Office of Greenways & Trails and provide an opportunity for all children to enjoy Florida’s greenways and trails:

 

Cross Florida Greenway in Marion County

Located at the Baseline Road Trailhead, this playground is operated and maintained by Marion County.  It is just one recreational site that is within the 110 mile long, 80,000 acre Cross Florida Greenway, which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River.

Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail in Wakulla County

Located at the Wakulla Station Trailhead of the 16-mile Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail, this playground is a popular site for family outings along this picturesque and historic state trail.

“I commend DEP’s greenways, trails and state parks for working to enhance outdoor recreation throughout the state so more people with disabilities can enjoy natural Florida,” said Director of the Agency for Persons with Disabilities Jim DeBeaugrine.  “Building new inclusive playgrounds and other facilities are important to all people within and visiting our state while attempting to ensure that every member of a family can actively participate in recreational activities in our state parks, greenways, and trails.”
