Universal Accessible Playground 

Imagine the left playground replacing the right playground.

The picture on the left is a concept drawing of what the new playground will look like as much as possible.  The picture on the right is the playground that will be replaced by the new playground.  Target completion date is the Fall of 2022.

Help us raise funds to make this Dream a Reality- Uxbridge Lions Universal Playground. In the fall of 2022 a new family-friendly playground will come home to Elgin Park in Uxbridge. Children, young people and adults will enjoy this unique playground which will incorporate sensory music play, and various pieces. Help us fundraise to see this Dream become a Reality in our town of Uxbridge.

The Uxbridge Lions have embarked on a new community project, with a proposal for a universal playground in Elgin Park.

 

A committee was created to work on this project and we are looking for people to help us raise funds for a new fully accessible playground in Elgin Park to accommodate people with all abilities to upgrade an existing play structure.

The proposed play structure would be for children and adults of all abilities.  This play structure is scheduled to be completed in the next two years.

 

Our motto is "We Serve," and our slogan is "Where There's a Need, There's a Lion," and over a year ago we identified a need," said Bob Armitage, Secretary of the Uxbridge Lions Club during a presentation to Town of Uxbridge Council.

"Imagine a child not being able to get on a swing and not feeling that rush of pleasure we remember as a child and that we took for granted.  We're trying to bring inclusivity into the town.  I think it's an important topic these days and it will also be a destination.  Elgin Park is already host to a number of events throughout the year, and this would, hopefully, bring a broader audience and increase accessibility to the park by the community."

The new accessible playground will be the first of its kind in the Uxbridge area.  We are planning exciting play opportunities with natural elements for climbing, rolling, sliding, crawling, building and adventure.  Fun features for spinning that are inclusive and safe and an array of swings for everyone.  We are adding music features that will invite children and adults alike to explore percussive instruments. 

We have already raised $80,000.  With a goal to open our playground in the Fall of 2022, we need your help.  Please make a donation by clicking on the PayPal button to help us Build your Community’s Dream Playground – A Playground for All!
