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!

Inclusive Features of Jonathan’s Dream Reimagined

Jonathan’s Dream was and is designed to be a place where children and people of all ages and all abilities can celebrate life together. When the original Jonathan’s Dream was designed, it was considered ‘wheelchair accessible’ and intergenerational, one of the first playgrounds of its kind in the country.  Jonathan’s Dream Reimagined will also be ‘wheelchair accessible’ and intergenerational but it will be so much more as you will see below.  Although every child will not be able to do everything (play activities designed for children with specific disabilities may not be usable by children with other disabilities), every child will be able to do many things throughout the playground.
