About the Kirkwood Inspiration Park
The Friends of Kirkwood Parks committee is asking for the community’s support to build Kirkwood Inspiration Playground, an all-inclusive playground project, by the summer of 2019.
Kirkwood Inspiration Playground will provide a fun, safe, and inclusive play space where children of all abilities can grow and learn through physical, emotional, sensory and social experiences.
The playground will also enable parents and grandparents with disabilities to share these experiences with their children.
The Friends of Kirkwood Parks is a committee of community members hoping to double the size of the existing playground located at Valley Park on Francis Street, in Kirkwood.
This unique initiative seeks to address a recreational disparity for children, parents and grandparents with mobility impairments.
For children with disabilities, most of the playground equipment in our parks is unusable, effectively excluding them from participation.
The Kirkwood Inspiration Playground seeks to remedy this by providing an accessible and inclusive environment for children and adults of all abilities, benefiting disabled children and adults throughout Kirkwood and the surrounding area.
Our goal is to raise $350,000 over the next year so we can build Kirkwood Inspiration Playground by the summer of 2019.
We can’t do it without the help of the entire community.
Please help us make this unique playground a reality by making your tax-deductible donation today!
