KPB Grant Restores Handicapped Accessible Playground In Dauphin County

PA Environment Digest Possibility Place Playground in Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin County, was built in 2006 by community members as a place where children of all physical abilities could come together to play.

Since then, the playground has become the go-to place for recreation, birthday celebrations and special sports team events.

It’s no wonder that when the Rotary Club of Colonial Park Foundation applied to Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful for a Fresh Paint Days PA Grant to renew a mural, garden boxes, climbing wall, benches, a boat house and more it was awarded with pleasure.

The playground is the only 100 percent handicapped accessible playground in Dauphin County and was the first fully-accessible playground in the Commonwealth.
