CAN-DO PLAYGROUND BECOMES A REALITY

Delaware is about to enjoy a new Small Wonder that will open on July 11, 2007 in the new Alapocas Run Park just north of Wilmington. It is the Can-Do Playground, the first public playground of its kind in Delaware, conceived and developed by six Wilmington-area Rotary clubs. Rotarians throughout the world are dedicated to building strong communities. This spirit of service motivated the clubs to work together to celebrate Rotary International’s 100th anniversary in 2005 by answering a real need.

There are 8,000 children with disabilities in Delaware and, until now, there has not been a public facility in our state where they could play with their families and friends, creatively and without limitation. The new Can-Do Playground is a “Boundless™ Playground”. It has been specifically designed in consultation with the National Center for Boundless Playgrounds®, the Connecticut-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping communities create extraordinary barrier-free playgrounds where children, with and without disabilities, can develop essential skills for life as they learn together through interactive play.

We are so very proud of the effort, creativity and dedication of some 450 Rotarians working in partnership with Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Division of Parks and Recreation, DelDOT and numerous community leaders and organizations. The Can-Do Playground, 23,000 square feet of play without limits, is the realization of our dream for a place where everyone can be in the middle of the fun.

Thank you to everyone involved in funding, designing and building this most wonderful place.
