Almost two hundred people enjoyed a warm evening on the playground at Parkside Elementary School Thursday night in Grants Pass, to celebrate the Ribbon Cutting, officially opening the all-inclusive playground, the result of the Blue Slide Project.
The playground, the dream of Mona Pinon, came together as a classic community project, funded by grants, private donations, fundraisers, and a whole lot of sweat equity coming from local individuals and groups. The emcee of the event, Principal Rob Taylor, introduced Ms. Pinon, who in turn, thanked many, including her inspiration, Brady Adams.
The playground at Parkside is accessible for all children, including those with disabilities. The rubber mat, which covers much of the playground, allows greater mobility for children who would otherwise have difficulty moving about the playground.
