The City of Ocean Springs and Disability Connection are working together to ensure that kids and adults with and without disabilities are included in playground activities.
The city received a $30,000 play space grant that will help sponsor the purchase of four fully accessible play structures: the sway glider, the sensory play center, the omni-spin spinner, and the zip-krooz assisted.
The additional equipment will create the first fully accessible public playground in Jackson County where all kids can share in play. Disability Connection Director Janie O’Keefe said, “The fully accessible playground means not only will they be able to climb out of their wheelchair into equipment, but there will be a piece of equipment that they don’t even have to leave their wheelchair. They’ll be able to actually get on the equipment in their wheelchair in case they have significant disabilities.”
Disability Connection is preparing to host a community playground build. Organizations and individuals who would like to be part of the community project can contact Disability Connection.
