An April 15 ribbon cutting has been set for the new inclusive playground and related Phase 2 developments in the northeast corner of Meadowbrook Park, located near Roe Avenue and Meadowbrook Parkway.

A short ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. The new developments, which also include restrooms, a shelter and a parking lot, opened for public use in late December.

Inclusive playgrounds are designed to enable children of all abilities to play together without barriers.

The Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s two existing inclusive playgrounds opened in 2018 in Stilwell Community Park and in 2019 in Shawnee Mission Park.
