Inclusionary playground opens in Hyde Park

The Hyde Park Inclusionary Playground officially opened to the public on Tuesday.

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — Congressman Brian Higgins and City of Niagara Falls officials opened the Hyde Park Inclusionary Playground Tuesday. 

The new play space was designed for children of all mobility and behavioral abilities. It was built to accommodate wheelchairs and features ground-level tactile features for special developmental needs.

The Hyde Park Inclusionary Playground project was made possible by both private and community fundraising, and did not use taxpayer dollars.

“Each family faces unique challenges. This inclusionary playground, a product of public driven community development, is a place that builds community where everyone, regardless of the struggles they face, is welcome to fun and friendship, said Congressman Higgins.

The Inclusionary Playground is located directly next to the larger play space installed three years ago in Hyde Park, off the of the intersection of Robbins Drive and Pine Avenue.
