Opening just in time for colder weather in 2023, Boundless is Rochester’s expansive space for fully inclusive indoor play all year round! Boundless is a project years in the making by local non-profit SEMCIL (SE MN Center for Independent Living, Inc). “Run by people with disabilities for people with disabilities, full inclusion, and community participation is the foundation of the work SEMCIL does.”

Meeting A Community Need
SEMCIL recognized the need for a fully-inclusive space and worked for years to bring this facility to fruition.
“Southeast Minnesota lacks fully accessible play spaces, particularly indoors and in rural communities. While many community and indoor parks and playgrounds have ramp access to play structures, they lack ground-level surfacing and access to many of the actual play features, including slides. These design deficiencies hinder engagement, especially for children and their caretakers who have a disability. We’ve designed Boundless to remove as many barriers as possible and to open the play experience in a new way.”
Congratulations to SEMCIL on this beautiful facility, and the Rochester community looks forward to years of play for all!
