Joy Playground

Parents For Joy is a group of parents, family members, and friends of children with special needs.  We worked together, along with the City of Atascadero, many service clubs and private donors, to build a very special playground in Atascadero, Ca.  Joy Playground is a one-of-a-kind playground for children and adults of all abilities! The city of Atascadero generously donated the land (behind the Community Center on Traffic Way). The playground opened in April 2019. We are still raising funds for more shade, upgrades to the equipment, a maintenance fund, and our Phase 2 project: a splash pad!

San Luis Obispo County has over 7000 children with a physical or neurological disability.  These children deserved a place to be a kid, a place for everyBODY to play! The playground also serves adults with disabilities, such as veterans, who need an accessible place to play with their kids. 

Please continue to support us so we can make Joy Playground (and splash pad) a safe a fun place for everyone for years to come!
