For children living with a disability, a playground can often be an isolating place.
Chris Duffy, whose son Jack lives with severe cerebral palsy spastic paraplegia, compared it to a prisoner watching people have fun from behind bars.
However, with plans to install an all-inclusive wheelchair carousel at Royal Park, Mr Duffy hopes that soon children of all abilities will be able to enjoy themselves.
An initiative of the Just Like Jack Foundation, in partnership with the City of Launceston council, the carousel is accessible for children confined to a wheelchair and those who are not.
Describing it as the "Rolls-Royce" of inclusive play equipment, Mr Duffy said everyone should be able to have some fun - even if they live with a disability.
"We came across a similar carousel while on a family holiday in Victoria. So we got Jack onto it and he just had a blast," he said.
"Usually in a playground the best we can do is push him around on his own.
"But this allowed him to play with other kids.
"We knew then that we needed to work on getting something similar in Launceston."
The Duffy family formed the Just Like Jack foundation in an effort to help provide other children living with a disability the opportunity to embrace new adventures.
With plans to have the carousel installed by mid-August, Mr Duffy said he hoped it would provide an inclusive environment for everyone.
"There's no reason why all children shouldn't be given the opportunity to enjoy a playground," he said.
"And not just kids. There would be people who have spent most of their lives in a wheelchair.
"We want them to enjoy this as well."
