WHAT IS A BOUNDLESS PLAYGROUND?

It's an integrated play area in which all children, those who are able and those with disabilities, can play interactively. The objective is to design an area that is barrier-free, socially inviting, and contains play environment groupings.

Build Jake's Place builds "playgrounds for everybody". Playgrounds where children in wheelchairs and other assistive devices can play along side others with ease. Even parents and grandparents with a disability can play and interact with the children.


Over the past several years, Jake's Place has been nationally ranked as "one of the best playgrounds" not only in the Greater Philadelphia area but across the country.

Jake’s Place is the #1 tourist attraction in Camden County, New Jersey.
