about Shane's Inspiration:
The playground is named after Shane Williams, who died in 1998, two weeks after being born severely disabled. In his memory, his parents created a playground for children in wheelchairs, and with other disabilities. Known as a boundless playground, the intention is to make the structures safe, accessible, and enjoyable for all kinds of children, and it succeeds; this is a great playground!
You'll find huge, armchair swings for mothers cradling babies, slides, tunnels, bridges, a miniature 'driving area' - complete with stop signs and lane lines - for bikes and scooters, sand boxes, boat, plane and train shapes for pretend driving, rocketship shapes for pretend blasting-off, dinosaur and castle shapes for just pretending, and tire swings. And all of it is on a thick, rubberized surface to protect knees, elbows, and heads.
Plenty of new bathrooms have just been built, too.
