Children with orthopedic disabilities (and their families) are constantly challenged when it comes to connecting with the natural environment. School gardens can significantly compensate for this lack of touch with nature. The present article examines the current status of green play environments in Ankara and aims to offer an optimized plan for designing the Dogan Chalar Special Education School garden. To plan the school garden, a multi-method approach was employed which incorporated cognitive presentation, a survey of the concerns and opinions of the parents of students with orthopedic disabilities, and interviews with such students themselves and their teachers. The findings provide both a model for the utilization of school grounds to improve children’s educational development and social interactions and a helpful source for professional designers of school gardens.
