Oak Lawn Park District All Inclusive Playground Ground Breaking
A Ground Breaking for the Oak Lawn Park District’s All Inclusive Playground at Columbus Manor, 99th & Moody Ave., will be held on Monday, September 11th.
The fun will begin at 5:30pm with free food (while supplies last), picnic games, and a raffle followed by a ground breaking ceremony at 6:00pm.
An inclusive playground will help the Park District to continue the mission of enhancing recreational opportunities, not only for people with disabilities, but for the entire community. In addition, it is the Park District’s hope that this inclusive playground aids in developing attitudes that promote tolerance and appreciation of differences; everyone can be together and have fun regardless of ability level.
The Oak Lawn Park District is a recipient of a playground matching grant through Illinois Park and Recreation Association, Playcore and their affiliated GameTime and Cunningham Recreation.
The Park District has already raised over $48,000, and continues to work towards the ultimate goal of $150,000.
