County to celebrate opening of inclusive playground
Currituck County will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony on September 1, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. to celebrate the opening of the county's new inclusive playground at Community Park in Maple. The inclusive playground has been constructed next to the current playground at Maple Park, located beside the soccer fields. The inclusive playground 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.
A representative from Trillium Health Resources will attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, as will Currituck County elected officials and staff. The media and public are invited to attend.
For questions related to the inclusive playground, please contact Jason Weeks, Currituck Parks and Recreation Director, at (252) 232-3007, or Jason.email@example.com.
