Corona Secures Grant For First Inclusive Playground
The City of Corona is becoming a more welcoming place for children of all abilities.
Corona will soon welcome its first inclusive playground thanks to a $50,000 grant from Kompan. Inclusive playgrounds feature designs and equipment that allow all children, including those with physical or cognitive disabilities, to play alongside each other.
The inclusive playground will be the first of its kind in Corona and is being made possible through a partnership between Kompan, the City of Corona, and the Corona Parks Foundation (CPF), a non-profit organization. Since 1993, CPF has been raising funds to enhance the quality of life in the City by promoting and providing parks and recreation amenities and programs for citizens of all ages and have committed $50,000 in matching funds for the Lincoln Park playground.
David Montgomery-Scott, Library & Recreation Services Director, said the project will fulfill a pressing need in the community. The city, he added, is “absolutely thrilled to finally be able to bring an inclusive playground to our residents.”
