The woman behind the park made it her mission to create the space when her own child with special needs couldn’t play with her siblings on traditional playgrounds.
“We’re so excited for all the children to be able to play and learn from each other, kids of all abilities, disabilities and typical abilities… it’ll just be a dream come true,” said Juliet Dawkins, Exec. Director of LuBird’s Light Foundation.MORE NEWS: Jackknifed Semi That Took Out Guardrail In Icy Conditions Led To I-70 Closure
