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.

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.

What  you can do to help us create this wonder adventure for you and your family in Elgin Park:

  • Read more on our website and donate towards the playground or donate or sponsor towards a play feature.

  • Organize a fundraiser at work or in your neighbourhood.

  • If you have a business that you could donate some of the items (rocks, benches, flowers, etc.) seen in the renderings or video.

We would like to thank participants who submitted their ideas in our dream playground ideas competition in October, 2020.  Click here to view their submissions.
