All Work and No Play

I took this picture of a playground at Lotus Isle Park. I thought this picture was a great example of inaccessibility to leisure because this playground would not be accessible to people who use wheelchairs. There was no way to get on the toys if you used a wheelchair, and the walking path was covered with roots of trees that would make it extremely difficult for a wheelchair user to get around. What stood out to me about this most is that it is so ordinary. Most playgrounds aren't accessible to wheelchair users (as well as other differently-abled people), which I had never really considered until recently. The normalcy of this should be concerning to us all.
