Abstract: The paper applies the Inclusive Design Cube (IDC) and the Socially Inclusive Design Cube (SIDC) to examine the current design of one of the largest inclusive playgrounds in Hong Kong. The three dimensions of the IDC (i.e., motion, sensory and cognitive capabilities) and the social dimension of the SIDC are used to evaluate how the play facilities and the environment cater the needs of the disabled in the case study. Children with different kinds of disabilities are concerned in this paper. It is argued that the three capabilities are correlate with each other, and they should be considered as a whole in inclusive playgrounds. It also discusses the needs of social inclusiveness in play and its importance in densely populated cities.
