Mandan Opens Playground That's Accessible for Children of All Abilities

By  | 

The Mandan's Parks and Recreation department opened a new playground Thursday that will help all children have fun.

The Universal Playground covers more than 14,000 square feet and was designed with wheelchair accessible features.

Parents say they're happy with how close it is to the Bismarck, Mandan area.

"We had to drive to Minot to enjoy a day in the park, for him to be able to use his wheelchair to get around, so this being 10 minutes from home is a wonderful joy," said parent Janel Glass.

More than 50 sponsors helped pay for the Universal Playground.
