The OK-PIP playground – open to all children in Ottawa – was dedicated Saturday morning in Lincoln – Douglas Park. June Steder is spokesperson for the group overseeing the facility. Attending were Didi Contreras and Andrea Medrow, both who provided the inspiration for the project.  They are mothers of disabled children.
