In 2022, the Miracle League of Western Massachusetts was awarded $350,000 for the development of a playground for children of all abilities in the open land adjacent to Kennedy Park's playground. CPA funding will be supplemented with $100,000 raised privately by the Miracle League of Western Massachusetts, including a $30k donation from the Holyoke Rotary Club. This adaptive playground is the first of its kind in Holyoke. The ramped playstructure exceeds ADA-compliance by providing wheelchair access to all elements of the playground, including four therapeutic swing seats, a whirl, and other ground-level sensory elements. Its placement next to an existing playground is perfect for families with disabled and abled children. This is a truly a unique resource for our city and our region. Look for this playground at Kennedy Park summer of 2023.
