Groundbreaking held for Joy Playground 


-The City of Atascadero and Parents for Joy celebrated groundbreaking for the Joy Playground Project at Colony Park Community Center Tuesday afternoon.

The Joy Playground will be an all-inclusive Joy Playground for children with special needs and their adult parents, grandparents and other adult loved ones with special needs.

The playground is designed not only for those with special needs, but for the entire community.

The park will feature a variety of different slides, 12 swings and a Robin Egg that rocks back and forth to entertain the children. There will also be a raft that rocks and holds six children and a wheelchair. A teeter-totter with a tactile face provides a playmate for those with visual impairment or sensory issues.

The project was made possible by fundraising by the Parents for Joy, Kiwanis of Atascadero and many other local businesses, contractors, residents and nonprofit groups.

The organization is still in need of donations. For more information, you’re invited to check out their website at parentsforjoy.com.
