LaPark Playground

The former Park School had renovated their playground to include several inclusive and handicap accessible features ‍‍for their students. When Bethany Church purchased the playground, they wanted to keep it open for the community and accessible for all abilities. We noticed: it is visited by many families of varied abilities!  This project to renovate the playground with multi-generational equipment, inclusive features, and a splash pad for all kids has been many years in the making. We are excited to announce this "new PLAYspace" for LaPorte which opened in July of 2020.

Potential Future Features

Donations of ANY Amount Still Help!
While the Playground and Splash Pad are complete and open, expenses continue. Keeping LaPark open for free to the community costs around $10,000 per year. Future Additions are also being considered, like bathrooms.
