LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - A groundbreaking was held Tuesday for a brand new playground and spray park at Louisville's Shawnee Park. The new playground will be for all children, but it's specially built to accommodate children with disabilities as well - including those children who are in wheelchairs.
"Young kids with disabilities from ages two to five will not only have full access," says Mayor Jerry Abramson, "they'll have their own separated play area where they can feel safe and can enjoy it with their families close by."
The sprayground will have a unique steamboat/water theme because of Shawnee Park's close proximity to the Ohio River. The playground was modeled after one built in 2007 in Iroquois Park. The sprayground will feature multiple water spray jets and misting devices, and a multi-dimensional playground area complete with swing sets, slides and shaded areas.
The new play/sprayground was made possible through a partnership between the Olmstead Parks Conservancy, Metro Parks and the DREAM Foundation of Kentucky.
Construction should be complete by Spring 2011.
