Drumheller's newest accessible playground is inching closer and closer to becoming a reality.
Yesterday, June 13, Riverside Value Drug Mart donated $1,000 to the playground.
"It's really great that a lot of business are stepping up and showing their support for this project by helping financially. Every donation is getting us one step closer to that goal," expressed Greentree parent council member, Nikki Isley.
The playground equipment is being ordered this week.
"The plan is to install the accessible playground addition at the end of July. Where we're at right now is just not sure that we can replace the current deteriorated pour-in-place, that may need to wait until next summer," Isley outlined.
This accessible playground will be the first of its kind in Drumheller.
"The rest are all gravel surface, which is not an accessible surface. It's definitely a very important addition to the town as a whole, not just for the school, but also for tourists with mobility challenges," she noted.
Funds are still being accepted towards the accessible playground to help replace the pour-in-place ground.
