Construction began in October
After kicking off a fundraising campaign in 2019, PARA Foundation is constructing the first phase of an all-inclusive playground at Sokol Park, which will create opportunities for children and families of varied abilities to engage with each other in play. The social and physical health promoted by the playground is vital to the development of all children.
Elevate Tuscaloosa is contributing significantly to this project, alongside other community stakeholders. The playground will be designed and managed by PARA. The location at Sokol Park was chosen because of its central location within Tuscaloosa County. The first phase includes a pavilion with fully accessible restrooms, furnishings, playground equipment, and a seamless surface on the ground.
