Thisbe & Noah’s Promise Park:
A Playground for All
At the Nashville Zoo, Thisbe & Noah custom designed and built an all-inclusive playground for ALL children, called Thisbe & Noah’s Promise Park.
• Prevent Isolation in children with disabilities
• Foster Empathy and Compassion
• Encourage Philanthropy and more
The best part is that Promise Park has equipment designed for children with and without disabilities, promoting side-by-side play.
Promise Park is OPEN!
The park’s design incorporates pieces of equipment for all types of disabilities and needs, including:
Autism • Cochlear implants • Leg braces • Children in wheelchairs • Sensory disorders
“Since my children’s disease had them each bear dozens of different disabilities in one little body, I was able to navigate the design of the playground through their eyes so that what we create in Promise Park is the type of place where we aspire for every child to ﬁnd pockets of sheer delight and where each can ‘climb’ to the top of the treehouse, whether on wheels or legs — so that no child will be left at the bottom, wishing.”
— Laurian Scott, Co-Founder of Thisbe & Noah
Let’s ALL play!
Promise Park is built and ready for play! Thisbe & Noah gives away 100 Zoo Membership Grants each year to children with disabilities. Help us promote play for ALL!

About Thisbe & Noah
Laurian and John Scott established Thisbe & Noah in 2010, bearing the names of their two children who died of a neurological disease. Its mission is to improve lives by promoting research, awareness and support for children with neurological diseases. Since its founding, the organization has worked tirelessly to “fill the holes” the Scotts experienced in the quality of medical and communal care for their terminally ill children.
