East Palestine Park Renovated To Be More Accessible To All Kids
EAST PALESTINE, Ohio (WKBN) – The East Palestine City Park has been renovated. It’s now more accessible for children with wheelchairs or other mobility devices — and also offers play options for children of all abilities.It’s called the Rainbow Dreamland Playground.
There are two new swings designed for children with disabilities, and there’s an omnispinner that allows for an easy transfer from a mobility device and makes spinning fun for all children.
There’s a metallophone, which is similar to a large xylophone.
Also a chain bridge and older balance board were removed to make the playground accessible to all children.
Village Manager Mark McTrustry says the only part of the project not complete is a new pathway into the playground from the community center parking lot. McTrustry says he believes the path will be completed by the end of October.
