More than 250 people came to Butterfield Park on Saturday, November 5 for the grand reopening of the park and ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of The Playground for Everyone.
Imagine a playground where every child can participate in all elements of the design. A place where children of all abilities can play, socialize, and dream together; fostering acceptance, friendship, and understanding through play.
