Multigenerational, Inclusive Playground with Splash Pad for Kids of All Ages & Abilities
Major Renovations Coming for this LaPorte, Indiana Park!
The former Park School had renovated their playground to include several inclusive and handicap accessible features for their students. When Bethany Church purchased the playground, they wanted to keep it open for the community and accessible for all abilities. We noticed: it is visited by many families of varied abilities! This project to renovate the playground with multi-generational equipment, inclusive features, and a splash pad for all kids has been many years in the making. We are excited to announce this "new thing" for LaPorte.
Make a splash!

Thanks to the IHCDA Creating Places program, and the generosity of our community, we met our matching grant goal towards the splash pad of $50,000! Actually we exceeded it! We raised enough to be in the TOP TEN funds raised for causes through Patronicity! That along with other funds raised and the incredible support of the Healthcare Foundation of LaPorte, means that we may be able to complete the entire playground in 2019! Other Top Level Supporters are 1st Source Bank, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, American Licorice Company, the Bethany Foundation, Dunes Hospice, and the Ulery and Armiger Families.
Check out the giving levels and see which one fits your passion for this project.

Play is a healthy thing for families and all ages and abilities. We want to make LaPark truly inclusive and multi-generational. The Healthcare Foundation of LaPorte has been the key start in funding this dream!
This part of the renovation will be a handicap accessible, multi-feature splash pad. This can happen by 2019 with your help! Any donation helps. The Patronicity/IHCDA grant has helped to make the splash pad possible!
How can you help? Donations of any amount can be made online or at Bethany Church. You can also donate skills, services, and time. Community input sessions will be coming soon!
