For children with cognitive or physical disabilities such as autism and down syndrome, finding a place to play that is not only accessible, but also conducive to the various needs of a child, isn’t always easy to find. The Wilkes-Barre Special Needs Playground Project is a collaborative effort bringing together the City and local community organizations to build a positive, healthy, fun environment inspiring our whole community to learn, imagine and play together. This partnership, led by the City of Wilkes-Barre and Mayor George Brown, includes community volunteers, many service organizations, and is in collaboration with The Luzerne Foundation.  We have all joined forces to bring an all-inclusive community playground to the city.  But we need your help.
The vision for the playground is to give all of our children a place to learn, imagine and play together, we also see it as an answer to a shrinking recreational base occurring within the footprint of the city. We believe the Playground will be a rally point for our community to come together for a transformative project. Wilkes-Barre Special Needs Playground will be a true asset to the Wilkes-Barre area and beyond, offering several benefits to our community:
  • Sense of community
  • Promotion of health
  • Rally point for children, parents and businesses
  • Inclusion and diversity
  • Essential building blocks for education and imagination.
Please consider a fully tax deductible contribution or even a sponsorship.  This is your community, and your children and neighbors.  Your contribution will count towards a life-time of fun for children of all ages and capabilities.
“It’s more than a place to play,” Mayor Brown said. “It can be transformative, changing how people view a neighborhood.”
The City will start renovations at the Kirby Park Playground, and as gifts allow, renovate many of the other playgrounds around the City.
