Park To Open With Features Usable By Kids With Disabilities

The Utah town of Spanish Fork is opening a new park with some new features for all kinds of kids to play. 

The Daily Herald reports it will feature a wheelchair swing, sensory garden, ground-level merry-go-round and other accessible amenities. Construction on the $5 million park, began in February and it's expected to open Sept. 12. Officials say it was designed with input from local kids with special needs and funded through grants, donations and impact fees. One Spanish Fork mom whose son uses a wheelchair says it will be an invaluable resource to finally have a place to take him.
