ST. GEORGE — The City of St. George has invited the public to its groundbreaking ceremony Thursday at 4 p.m. for its All-Abilities Park at the west end of the parking lot near the community garden, next to Tonaquint Park, 1851 South Dixie Drive in St. George.
The goal of the park is to create a playground and environment that is universally inclusive and accesible to all, the city’s Leisure Services Director Kent Perkins said in an earlier interview.
“This facility will be built in Tonaquint Park and will provide persons with disabilities, their families, friends, and peers a place to play, socialize and learn together,” Perkins said. “We want to create a magical place where play happens without barriers or bias. A place where acceptance and awareness are fostered and the focus is on abilities, not disabilities.”
