Inclusive Playground at Presque Isle
Our YAC pledged $20,000 to the Friends of Presque Isle Park and the Adaptive Playground Planning Committee toward a new inclusive, adaptive playground. In 2011, this Committee recognized that children who have special movement and other needs do not have a safe, accessible playground. After many hours of design, work with the City governing bodies, site negotiation, etc., fundraising is in full swing. The total goal is $354,000 and the Committee hopes to begin building in 2017. It is a long term project, but will have big impact on our the families in our community and those who visit.
Marquette Skateboard park
Our YAC donated $1,400 for the Marquette Skateboard Park which opened in spring 2013 after years of planning and development.
