Help Us Create a Totally Accessible Playground in Elgin Park
The Uxbridge Lions Club, with the support of the Township of Uxbridge, sponsors and other volunteer organizations, is working to build a new playground area in Elgin Park.
Proponents of a new universal playground for Elgin Park presented several concept options to Uxbridge council during a meeting on Aug. 12.

This new playground will replace an existing older structure at the side of the paved path opposite the newer playground in Elgin Park. It will be an accessible playground that everyone can enjoy. Watch this video showing an example of a playground structure that is accessible by people of varying abilities.
The playground in this video was a project by a Lions Club in Vancouver, B.C.
Building Your Community Total Accessible Playground in Elgin Park
The goal is $150,000 to replace the existing playground with a total accessible play space. With more donations/sponsors o r work in kind we can build a much larger and more interactive play area. Look at the pictures and videos to get some ideas of what is available. Give us your feedback to what you would like to see here.
