The Miracles To Milestones Playground has been completed thanks to generous donations from around the United States. Upon completion, we were moved to North Louisiana, where we were contacted by the West Monroe Civitan Club. We have joined with them and their fundraising efforts for an inclusive playground in Kiroli Park in Ouachita Parish. We have jumped in with two feet, and anxiously await for Benjamin’s fourth birthday party to be held at Smiles Park.
St. Charles Parish is blessed with a large community of children with different abilities, as well as, a supportive Recreation Department. We are working with the parish, and have been given a location for a new handicap accessible playground at the East Bank Bridge Park. All we must do as a community is raise the funds. I am fully confident that this community can pull together to help build a playground where children and adults of all abilities can play together. WE PLAY AS ONE!
