Volunteers needed to help construct all abilities park in Houston



Volunteers are needed to help build an all abilities park in Houston, Minnesota.

A group of graduates from the class of 1966 has been working on the project for the last three years.

Several pieces of equipment will help those with physical disabilities.

“More inclusive items like a wheelchair swing,” says Houston City Council member Tony Schultz. “There’s some ramps there and such to get to other levels of the playground equipment.”

The high school class of 1966 has come up with the funding to a project that will likely be used by families in several communities.

“The one thing we as a society are doing better at is making sure everyone is included,” Schultz says. “There are families out there in that situation. This is a great way for them to get together and all enjoy the space.”

Construction continues through the end of the weekend.
