A playground is supposed to be a place where kids can play together without barriers.  Unfortunately, most playgrounds are not inclusive and feature very old equipment that is not inclusive.  However; there are exceptions to this and if you are in the Fargo- Moorhead area, inclusive playgrounds are available.  In Fargo, the Rotary Centennial Universal Playground at Lindenwood Park offers a playground that is accessible to children of all abilities.  In Moorhead, Minnesota, Gooseberry Mound park offers an accessible playground that is also accessible to children of all abilities and there is currently access to the footbridge over the Red River that provides access to Lindenwood park from the Minnesota side of the river.  The city of Mandan, ND has Eagles Park, which provides a state of the art playground for children of all abilities and boasts 7 van accessible parking spaces. Playgrounds are better when everyone can play.
