The Legislature hereby finds and declares that playground equipment accessible to and usable by all persons regardless of physical condition is becoming increasingly available. The Legislature further finds and declares that it is a matter of statewide interest and concern that all public agencies providing playgrounds utilize such facilities to the maximum extent possible, and, where feasible, provide playground equipment usable by both able-bodied and physically disabled persons so as to integrate able-bodied and physically disabled persons within such playgrounds.
