THE ALL-INCLUSIVE PLAYGROUND

The dairy-themed playground will be located at City Park and include unique swing sets for those using a mobility device as well as slides, climbing pieces, a seesaw and other sensory-rich devices.

“The total cost for this project is $400,000 which includes demolition, necessary excavation, all the play features and pour-in-place surface which is ideal for any form of mobility device to maneuver easily,” Kelli Votypka, director of parks and leisure services, told Beneath the Surface News.
