Eugene Parks Foundation aims to add instruments to Amazon Playground
EUGENE, Ore. - Spring time at Amazon Playground, the perfect place to climb, slide and swing - even for children who can't.
The newly renovated playground is Eugene's only fully inclusive playground, with equipment accessible to people with disabilities.
But it's still missing something ...
"We are bringing music to the park," said Cheryl Henderson with the Eugene Parks Foundation, "to add to the sensory experience for all kids."
The Foundation is taking "fully inclusive" to the next level, with plans to add giant drums, a xylophone and chimes to the playground.
"If a child is blind," Henderson said, "they can get the benefit of hearing the music, as a different sense in coming to the park, and they can experience that more actively."
There's already small replica of what the finished project will look like.
