The City of Happy Valley recently partnered with Rotary of Clackamas to bring a major playground project to life. The goal was to create an inclusive play area that promotes the healthy development of all children’s physical, cognitive and sensory abilities and serves as a space that will give everyone the chance to play, grow and learn together. Barrier-free access to play can be hard to find for many children and their families. Most play structures are geared toward very specific physical skill sets and can be quite difficult for those who struggle with range of motion or need supportive devices to aid in their movement. Having an all abilities play structure means anyone can participate in play regardless of ability, age, or social status. Thanks to the support of GameTime, local individuals and businesses, and very generous donations from the Fuller Family, Lyla J. Husband, Bill McCracken and Pam Husband, Happy Valley’s All Abilities Park is now open!
