VIDEO: Accessible Playground Unveiled at Farrow Riverside Miracle Park


A sneak peek for the new fully accessible playground at the Farrow Riverside Miracle Park.

On Friday the 13,000 square foot playground was showcased to the public.

It features more than a dozen specially designed play equipment including swings, slides, a zip line and a jungle gym.

All of the equipment sits on a rubber surface.

11-year-old Tanner Kell tested out the new playground and says he loved it.

"It's pretty cool," says Kell.  "It's good to have a park near my house that's actually good because we had the red one over there and that's pretty bad."


10-year-old Leah Laporte had a chance to play on the new equipment and says it was a lot of fun.

"I think the park is really cool because you get to do a bunch of stuff that most parks don't have," says Laporte.  "I like the zip line and the spider web thingy." 

The playground will now be shut down for a couple of weeks so final work can be done.

The playground is one of the features of the Miracle Park project.

The $2.8-million project also includes a Miracle League accessible baseball diamond, a cenotaph and a new recreation pathway.

It was suppose to be finished this spring but was push back to August.

Now completion for the entire project is expected in October.

The park is located on the grounds of the former Riverside Arena.
