City of Binghamton, New York


OurSpace at Recreation Park opened in June 2016 as the largest fully accessible playground in New York State. 

The playground's mission is to encourage and engage the community, with a focus on those with special needs, in physical and social activity by providing opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities to explore and socialize.

The 16,000 square-foot playground incorporates a variety of accessible features for people of all ages and abilities. It includes ramps throughout the playground, a swing designed for wheelchairs, a fully accessible merry-go-round, transfer stations, sensory gardens and a smooth surface. 

OurSpace is a collaboration between the City of Binghamton Parks & Recreation Department and the community. 

In 2017, the City of Binghamton won the award for Exceptional Park Design for OurSpace from the Central New York Recreation and Parks Society, the official leisure service industry organization for a 13-county region.

OurSpace is located at Recreation Park, 103 Laurel Ave. on Binghamton's West Side.
