The original Jonathan's Dream, inspired by the Barzach family of West Hartford and built in 1996 as the first Boundless Playground, created an inclusive, accessible play space for families and children of all abilities. The new Jonathan's Dream will extend this legacy with an engaging playground that keeps children of all ages and abilities active and moving. Help make this "reimagined" dream a reality!

Billy Crystal steals show to support West Hartford’s Jonathan’s Dream inclusive playground.

West Hartford, Conn. (March 26, 2017)—Film and comedy icon Billy Crystal stole the
show twice Saturday night (March 25).  Following a sold out show at the Toyota Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Billy Crystal joined his cousin and Jonathan’s Dream co-founder Amy Jaffe Barzach of West Hartford at the “Spend the Night with Billy Crystal” fundraiser for Jonathan’s Dream Reimagined.

On a night about comedy, Billy Crystal’s loudest words were about the drama of rebuilding a community playground where children and families of all abilities could celebrate life together. The original Jonathan's Dream was built in 1996 in memory of Amy and Peter Barzach’s son Jonathan Peter Barzach, a sweet little boy with old soul eyes. It was one of America's very first inclusive playgrounds.
“Tonight this dream is being re-dreamt,” Crystal said.
