Calling All Volunteers: All Access Playground is Ready To Be Built

centralparkAfter two years of intense fundraising, the Alliance for Morris County Parks is ready to build the new All-Access Playground, designed for children of all abilities, at Central Park of Morris County.

This state of the art playground is as special as the children who will make memories having outdoor fun as it is designed to be usable by children with disabilities. Now these children no longer are left out of playtime and forced to watch on the sidelines. All children can play side by side with their siblings and friends on this new All-Access Playground, providing more than 10,000 square feet of fun activity.

The playground received a lead grant from the NY Jets and the United Way of Northern New Jersey as part of the NRL Play 60 Hometown Huddle Program.

According to Denise Lanza, Executive Director of the Park Alliance, “The day has finally come when the equipment has been purchased and delivered, and we are ready to build. We invite everyone to be part of this very special moment when we can provide a playground for all children to have outdoor fun.”

On Thursday through Saturday, November 21through November 23, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., volunteers are needed to help assemble and build the playground at Central Park of Morris County, Central Avenue, Parsippany. Lanza stated, “We invite groups and individuals 12 and over to please come and help build this playground.” Lunch will be provided for those volunteers who stay all day, and snacks will be provided throughout the day.  For those interested, please contact Denise Lanza at dlanza@morrisparks.net if you have any questions. Any amount of time or assistance is greatly appreciated.

Lanza added, “This magical moment of finally getting ready to assemble and build this playground was made possible through donations by so many who value all children. Along with the Jets Hometown Huddle event and tree planting, major donors include The Dearhaven Fund, The Kirby Foundation, Tiffany & Company, Finish Line Stores, Wyndham Worldwide, and the Community Foundation of New Jersey.” Lanza further explained that when completed, this playground will be one of only a dozen playgrounds throughout New Jersey that is fully accessible to children with disabilities.
