Summary

Curing ignorance through play, the Fraser First Booster Club was formed in 2010, with the goal to raise funds to build Fraser and Macomb County's first-of-it's kind barrier-free park and playground. Once completed, this innovative and inclusive play environment will be specifically designed to meet the needs of children with sensory, development & physical challenges. The benefits of barrier-free play include fostering physical and cognitive strengths, decision-making abilities for all children.

Challenge

Children and adults with challenges cannot access outdoor parks, leaving them with fewer options for recreation and healthy outdoor activities. This can cause alienation and health problems like obesity and depression amongst their peers.

Solution

McKinley Barrier-Free Park is universally designed to be accessible and inclusive to all abilities, which allow children and adults with challenges to discover their strength through the common grounds of play.

Long-Term Impact

Potential long-term impact of a barrier-free park is: - The future employment of people with challenges - Attracting new families - Improving health and fitness for multi-generational communities - Increase socialization for people with challenges - Improving property values - Becoming a destination park which benefits the local economy
