Design, Shane's Inspiration Rocket's Universe opened in July 2017, marking the 50th inclusive playground design by Shane's Inspiration, a Los Angeles based non-profit whose mission is to create inclusive playgrounds and programs that unite children of all abilities, while fostering a bias-free world for children with disabilities. This 11,000-square- foot project became possible due to the generosity of the Ruch Family Foundation donating $1.3 million in memory of John 'Rocket' Williams IV. The playground was gifted to the City of Los Angeles, Recreation and Parks at the grand opening. The public / private partnership with LA Recreation & Parks granted the Right of Entry, allowing the freedom to design and construct.
