County celebrates opening of inclusive playground
Currituck County held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 13, 2016 to celebrate the county's new inclusive playground at Community Park.
The inclusive playground is located with the current playground beside the soccer fields. It utilizes adaptive playground equipment that can be used by children with special needs, including those in wheelchairs.
The inclusive playground was made possible by a grant from Trillium Health Resources, which awarded Currituck County a "Play Together Construction Grant" of $150,000 in 2015. Remaining funds from this grant will also allow Currituck County to install an adaptive swing set at Sound Park, located in Harbinger. This will be installed later this year.
