Variety KC Playground and Splash Pad in Raymore Opening!
July 31 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Imagine, a play space where everyone can experience the happiness of simply playing with friends. That’s the goal for the inclusive playground and splash park in Raymore, Missouri.
In July, 2019, Variety KC’s newest inclusive play area will open in Cass County, Missouri. It’s a collaboration with Parks and Recreation and Unlimited Play (the inclusive playground design company behind the majority of Variety KC’s venues).
Why do playgrounds like this matter? According to Unlimited Play, “Play is a critical part of the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of every child. Unfortunately, the vast majority of playgrounds deny children with disabilities and critical illnesses the opportunity for exercise, entertainment and social interactions which other children enjoy. In fact, only a small percentage of fully accessible playgrounds exist within our nation and these are insufficient to serve 43 million Americans with disabilities.”
