Enormous thanks go out to the vendors who have donated their time and materials for our accessible parking area: T&K ASPHALT SERVICES, AGGREGATE INDUSTRIES, HICKEY CONSTRUCTION and J.J.

The Boundless Playground Concept

The National Center for Boundless Playgrounds was the first national non-profit dedicated to helping communities create extraordinary playgrounds where all children, with and without disabilities, can develop essential skills for life as they learn together through play.

Boundless Playgrounds® provided leadership, training, technical and support services to promote play environments that are barrier-free and provide children of all abilities with developmental advantages. There are currently over 160 Boundless Playgrounds nationwide.

Thank you for joining us in our quest to bring all children, no matter what their abilities, to a place in our community where they can play, grow, learn and laugh together.

It is exceptional to find a playground in a community that is barrier-free. Built so that all children, with and without disabilities, can engage in productive play.
