The Yard is a purpose
built indoor and outdoor adventure playground in Edinburgh for children and young people with disabilities.

We provide care, support, fun and friendship in equal measure while promoting challenge and personal growth in an environment which values independence and celebrates the capabilities and achievements of each individual child.
