A New Accessible Playground in Kenosha

Kenosha Dream Playground
I visited Kenosha this week to see the new Dream Playground which will have its grand opening October 10 at 1:00 in Petzke Park (at 31st & 14th).  This is an amazing new play space, built by volunteers with a million dollars in donations. I spoke with Tammy Conforti, the lady behind the dream, and she was very humble about the project.  She said she just wants everyone to know that Kenosha welcomes people of all abilities. I know this is going to get lots of use.  There are  nautical structures and swings, including one that can hold a wheelchair.  You'll also find accessible new bathrooms.  It's just a beautiful project.  I hope you'll go and see it for yourself.

I'll be posting about other fun spots you can visit in Kenosha Parks over the next week, so check back for more ideas and make a day of it.  This fall is the perfect time to go visit Kenosha!

These playgrounds are becoming very popular and what community would not want to have one? It takes donations and lots of help from many people to see them get built.  There's a group in St. Francis raising funds currently.  When they are successful, that playground could be built at Green Park. Like the St. Francis All Abilities Facebook Page to keep up to date with their progress.

There are additional playgrounds which are accessible in the Milwaukee area.  Check out my Best Playgrounds blogpost for more information on Hart Park and Wil-O-Way.  Port Washington has Possibility Playground too.
