Inspiring H.O.P.E. Playground at Cousler Park is Now Open!

The Inspiring H.O.P.E. playground at Cousler Park in Manchester Township has completed construction and is ready to be enjoyed.  I've been looking forward to the opening of this playground!  I think it's a fantastic idea.  You can read about their mission and purpose by clicking on the post title but here is a sampling from their website:

"Inspiring H.O.P.E will create a community-build, barrier-free playground to allow children who cannot walk, see or hear to have a place to play alongside children who can. Nearly 5,000 elementary and middle school-aged children from York County have sensory, physical, or mental disabilities. They need a place to play safely with equipment designed for their abilities. The project will serve the children with disabilities and parents who have disabilities who cannot maneuver around other playgrounds because of barriers."

A perfectly free and fun afternoon for all ages.  Have your older kids bring their bikes or scooters (with helmets!) if they don't like playing on playgrounds.  There are 3 trails ranging from .5-1.5 miles in length.
