What's Happening!

New Inclusive Playground at Mammoth Creek Park - Coming Soon!

This inclusive playground will provide opportunities for physical, social-emotional, sensory, cognitive, and communicative benefits of play for all abilities. The ‘supervised’ community build has ended and the installation of the inclusive tiles, curbing and sand pit will take place next week. We will be holding a ribbon cutting ceremony on the 4th of July immediately following the parade to introduce the community to their new playground. We hope you all can make it!
