Our Story

Thank you for your interest in the Dream Build Play Experience. We’re a nonprofit organization dedicated to building inclusive, accessible playgrounds in Chicago and surrounding communities. Our organization was founded to support groups of individuals with disabilities and their families. Our board consists of concerned community and family members who have a passion for empowering people with disabilities, all so they can live their best lives as they wish. Abide In Me is pleased and honored to serve as the funding partner for such a worthwhile endeavor. People with disabilities are individuals who deserve to live as true contributing members of our world.

Active Projects

The team at Dream Build Play is excited to help communities build play areas that accommodate all playground enthusiasts. We are hard at work making playground dreams come true at several locations.

Completed Projects

It all began with Owen’s Playground at Hillcrest Elementary School in Downers Grove, Illinois. The universally-designed playground was designed with inclusion in mind. Connected structures, adaptive elements and equipment offering sensory and vestibular input are just a few of the unique features that make Owen’s Playground a haven for outdoor play.


The Dream Build Play Experience wouldn’t be possible without the support of others. Thank you for your donation.
