'All-access' playground unveiled in Havre de Grace
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Havre de Grace unveiled its new all-access playground on Saturday, with special equipment accessible for children with various disabilities.
It's the second such playground to open recently in the greater Baltimore area. Angel Park just celebrated a year of being open in Perry Hall.
Havre de Grace's new playground features a lighthouse, in honor of the city's prominent waterfront location and the Concord Point Lighthouse landmark. The playground is at Tydings Park, right by the Susquehanna River.
The playground includes a REV 8 Rotating Climber, interactive stations, a custom lighthouse and climber resembling Concord Point and many other pieces of equipment that are in compliance with ASTM (American Society for Testing Materials) and CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) playground standards, according to a statement.
"Addressing the needs of all children is not just a hallmark of a 21st century city, it is also emblematic of the compassionate character of our citizens," said Mayor Bill Martin in a statement.
