Play for All at Raab Park is a community effort to build a fully inclusive playground in North Kitsap County.

Imagine the pain felt by a disabled child or adult who sees other children enjoying a playground full of equipment they can’t use. Or a parent or grandparent who can’t play with family members because of their own special needs. Children and adults with disabilities often face limitations—but that shouldn’t happen at a playground.

An ideal playground has something for everyone and offers ways for people of all ages to challenge themselves physically, mentally, and socially.

Since 2018, a citizen group has been working to build a fully inclusive and ADA-compliant playground in North Kitsap. The group forged early partnerships with the City of Poulsbo’s Parks & Recreation Department and the Poulsbo Rotary Club, which took it on as a club project.
