All kids deserve the right to play together, and this newer, inclusive play space makes it all possible with adaptive swings and seesaws, smooth and wide paths for wheelchairs, boulders to scramble up and wide slides to glide down. Animal sculptures, a sandbox with water features and a wheelchair-accessible sensory garden offer children tactile experiences. This unique playground is dedicated to the life of a local child, Owen Marshall, whose parents, Stacy and Kelsey Marshall, advocated for its design and creation after their son passed away from complications related to cerebral palsy.
