The City of Stephenville and Waste Connections are on a mission to make sure that every child in Stephenville has a place to play.


The two have formed a partnership to raise money for an all-inclusive playground with equipment designed for children with special needs and are hosting a golf tournament to raise money.

“The idea of a golf tournament was suggested by a resident of Stephenville when they approached the city in the fall of 2020 to recommend an all-inclusive playground where children of all abilities can play together,” Kelli Votypka, director of parks and leisure services, told Beneath the Surface News. “This member of our community has been a part of the planning committee since day one along with parks and leisure services staff and members of Waste Connections; who is a major sponsor this year.”


The playground will be located behind the Rec Hall at City Park.


It will have a dairy farm theme and include unique swing sets for those using a mobility device as well as slides, climbing pieces, a seesaw and other sensory-rich devices.

Trash to Treasures, a golf tournament benefiting the project, will be held on Friday, June 11, at Legends Country Club. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. and tee time is at 10.
