BENEFITING: JOHNSON COUNTY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Jun 01, 2013
Center Grove Rocks The Park II: Grovestock is our second annual event to benefit the expansion and upgrade of Indiana's first handicapped accessible park, Independence Park.
Opened on September 17th, 2000, Independence park has served thousands of families and students with special needs. Since it's inception, standards for accessible playground equipment has changed and evolved immensley. It is because of that reason that we need to upgrade and expand the park so we can continue to serve our community and surrounding communities with the best handicapped accessible and sensory rich equipment.
We need to upgrade our hand built ramps with steel ramps. We would like to add an accessible glider, better high back swings with locking over the shoulder plastic harnesses, repair our wheelchair platform swings, add more balancing and sensory equipment as well as a new, custom play area for children ages 13 and over.
Last spring we were able to secure grants and donations to install an outdoor music center for children with Autism and other sensory disabilities. Please help up keep this ball rolling! It is a large amount of money, but you can not put a price tag on a child's ability to play. Thank you!
