Village of Lewiston Mayor Anne Welch recently received a check in the amount of $1,000 from Modern Disposal for the inclusive playground. The recreational area will be built in Marilyn Toohey Park, behind the Red Brick Municipal Building.
Playground plans call for enhanced safety and shading features; sound, motion/movement and sensory-sensitive areas for kids with special needs; musical instruments; “buddy” swings, We-saw seesaws and wheelchair-accessible slides; a seated zipline; open green space to interact or just stretch; and a splash pad.
Donations are still being accepted. For more information, call the mayor’s office at 716-754-8271.
