THE STORY:

Preston's Playground Committee wrote -

We’re serious about making play accessible for all kids. After all, playgrounds are a way of life for many families. What better way to enjoy the outdoors than for children to run, jump, swing, laugh and learn on a playground? Sadly, not all families have access to a community playground. There are even fewer options for children in wheelchairs or with crutches. I know this reality all too well. When I visit the playground with my son, Preston, he sits in his wheelchair next to me and watches the other children play. He smiles when they smile, but it is not the same smile. Preston and other children in Delaware need a place to play together side by side. They need a place where they all smile the same smile because they are all having fun together! This opportunity for family, friends and fun to come together will be a reality with Preston’s Playground. Preston’s Playground is an all-inclusive park soon to be located at the Newark Reservoir. Here, ALL children will enjoy a safe, shaded playpark that is sure to be a destination for many families. We already have the land and are beginning our journey to raise the $500,000 to complete construction. Preston’s Playground is about making inclusive play the expectation and not the exception here in Delaware. Help us as we bring this vision to life – our kids deserve nothing less. Thank you for joining us on this journey. Deb Buenaga, Co-Founder Preston’s Playground Preston’s Playground Committee www.prestonsplayground.com
