A local group is working to create:
The First Inclusive Playground in McLean County
designed for all Ages and Abilities
The City of Bloomington has already budgeted $85,000 to replace the existing playground equipment, the safe accessible equipment costs $350,000. Grants to cover part of the difference have been received. They still need around $200,000. This project is a true public-private partnership, it doesn’t put the risk and expense on taxpayers.
The group has a website: https://www.harmonyparkproject.org/
They are also on Facebook.
Donations of ANY size are needed for this project. Kids of all abilities deserve a save place to play!
I’m sure they would be happy to meet with community groups to discuss the project.
