about Preston's HOPE Playground:
The playground includes elements for not only physically impaired, but Braille labels and auditory elements for vision impaired guests.
A play theatre, a sand and water area, and a covered pavillion add (even more) broad-reaching appeal.
The story behind Preston's H.O.P.E. Playground is a good one, too. H.O.P.E. is an acronym for Helping Others Play and Enjoy. The playground was envisioned by Jackie and Ken Fisher, parents of Preston, who was born with a genetic disorder that requires him to play from a wheelchair.
The playground was constructed largely thanks to generous donations from area builders and other businesses, and is located on the property of the The Mandel JCC, however, membership in the JCC is not required to enter Preston's H.O.P.E. Playground.
