LEO’s Haven

1 in10 children have a disability which translates to roughly 5,000 children in Santa Cruz County who need a playground where they feel they can belong. LEO’s Haven will be a playground designed to provide all children access to the benefits of play while fostering respect, empathy, and friendship. It will be Santa Cruz County’s first inclusive playground for children of all abilities.

An ever growing group of community supporters is working with the County of Santa Cruz in a unique public private partnership to build LEO’s Haven at Chanticleer Park in the Live Oak neighborhood of Santa Cruz by 2019. Once complete, LEO’s Haven will be an inclusive center where all children can play in the heart of our county.

If you would like to give children the opportunity to learn and play together at LEO’s Haven please visit to find out how you can be a supporter.
