SPOKANE, Wash. — An all-inclusive playground opened in Riverfront Park on Friday.

The Providence Playscape sits along the Howard Street Promenade, just north of the orange bridge.

The park will give children more than 20 inclusive play elements, including swings for all abilities, music-making pieces and a sensory wall to help children with their visual, auditory and tactile processing.

“It’s important that we recognize what playgrounds like this actually do. Emotion and spiritual and physical health improves when people play,” said Peg Currie of Providence Health.
