Variety’s inclusive “Field of Dreams” Baseball Themed playground in Wyandotte County Park will celebrate a Grand Opening on August 21st. The mayor and city officials will hold the official ribbon-cutting to kick off the safe public opening of the playground.

The event will be restricted to a crowd of 45 people, those interested should arrive early.

Following the opening, the park will be open to the public with adherence to safety guidelines, social distancing, masks, and being mindful of the number of children playing at once. As with all of Variety’s inclusive play areas, special steps have been taken to ensure all kids can play together. Peer-to-peer equipment, special surfacing for mobility ease, and fencing to keep children safe.

Playgrounds are where children discover cooperation and problem-solving. They observe similarities and difference and discover ways to play together. An inclusive playground has proven benefits for physical fitness and exercise, but they also help to even the playing field, allowing all kids to engage.

If you can’t attend the opening, the event will be shown on Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/varietykc.

This playground is the ninth inclusive facility built through support from Variety KC’s #inclusionrevolution effort.
