Our flagship Magical Bridge Playground opened to the public in April 2015 in the heart of Silicon Valley. Located in Mitchell Park in Palo Alto, California, Magical Bridge is heralded as the nation’s most innovative and inclusive playground, attracting visitors of all ages and all abilities.
A town square for the 21st century
Universally Designed* to be a socially inclusive playground for everyone, Magical Bridge finally includes the 1-in-4 of us living with physical and cognitive disabilities, autism, visual and hearing impairments, the medically fragile, and our aging population. The first of its kind, Magical Bridge clearly illustrates how today’s typical park designs overlook so many.
Here are a few of the features you will discover when visiting Magical Bridge Playground.
Frequently asked questions
We emphatically ask that you do 2 things:
- Please not bring your large parties and groups to the playhouse/stage area, where we have 3 small round tables. These are designated for small group gatherings or places parents can offer their kids a snack, not for a big party setting (with the mess that comes with it….sorry).
- Please clean up after yourselves.
We appreciate your sense of responsibility and hope to continue offering the use of the park at no charge. Many of our guests travel from far and wide to be able to host a birthday for a child who, because of a disability, was previously unable to enjoy the use of an outdoor space. It is our sincere hope that every guest to the playground cherishes it as we all do. We want to be able to keep the admission free and to rely on you to help keep it magical for years to come!
