See Us in TODAY Show Piece on Harper's Playground!

I have been so impressed with Harper's Playground ever since I made friends with Harper's dad, Cody Goldberg. He and his wife raised more than a million dollars to build an inclusive playground for children at Arbor Lodge Park in North Portland. This is NOT a place just for disabled kids — much like the iPhone, good design makes sense for EVERYBODY! Such an inspiration!

Check out this (sadly, very short!) piece that aired Nov. 10 on the TODAY show to learn more. Watch for Malachi and Jaden on the adaptive merry-go-round, me putting Malachi into one of the swings and the back of his distinctive red Mulholland walker!

  1. Oh wow, that's amazing! What a wonderful space for everyone!

  2. I saw this in November and thought of you guys! Specifically I thought, "Shasta's boys would LOVE that merry go round!" and "That's like Malachi's walker!" lol! It was like subliminal messaging.

    I think it is so awesome that there is a park that is great for both boys!

    1. Nice! ha ha! Yeah, it's a great place. I wish we lived closer to it!

  3. My God, this is so wonderful Shasta...What a fantastic actually inspired me to do something similar here in Oslo...Although we have very good playgrounds here, there is nothing like this one on the video. This is my 2014 project :-)

    1. Fantastic, Fernanda! Cody is on Facebook at and is a wealth of information. I'm sure he can set you up with some resources for how to make this happen in Oslo!

  4. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family!
