Reimagining One of America’s First Inclusive Playgrounds

Reimagining One of America’s First Inclusive Playgrounds

After five years of renovations, inclusive playground Jonathan’s Dream has finally opened its grounds to the public again. The original Jonathan’s Dream was built in 1996 in memory of Amy and Peter Barzach’s son Jonathan Peter Barzach. It was the first Boundless Playground to offer an inclusive, accessible play space for families and children of all abilities.

The new playground includes Kevin’s Kourt, an inclusive basketball court donated by Coach Kevin Ollie and the Kevin Ollie Charity Classic. Jonathan’s Dream was rebuilt with the support of the community; the PAC Group, which donated construction management services; and Shane’s Inspiration, which donated design services.

Share your memories and photos from the original Jonathan’s Dream using the #JonathansDream hashtag.

For more information, visit JonathansDreamReimagined.org. Location: Mandell Jewish Community Center, 335 Bloomfield Ave, West Hartford.
