New handicap-accessible playground equipment in Marseilles

Posted by wlpo on September 30, 2015

If you have a handicapped child and live in Marseilles, you may have noticed a lack of options for your child to play outside.

Now with the help of Exelon Generation, Marseilles has a handicapped-accessible park where all children will be able to play. The city applied for a grant last year to help fund American’s with Disabilities compliant equipment for its park.

Danielson Stevenson Park will have several new features, including a wheelchair accessible swing and a rubber surfacing mat. The park also received upgrades from other donors that included a new bathroom, gazebo and hopscotch court.

The park is located at 621 10th street in Marseilles. A ribbon cutting ceremony will officially open the park on Monday, October 12th.
