Make-A-Wish Park

Overview

The Make-A-Wish All Abilities Park at Glenn Heights City Center will allow the entire family to have an enjoyable experience. The safe and welcoming environment will be developed as a part of the Glenn Heights City Center Project. The Park will be designed to be fully accessible to those of all-abilities and ages. For our residents and visitors with physical and cognitive limitations, they will no longer feel left out of the fun. Having a park where communities can be active, educated, while allowing the opportunity to enhance their social skills, is a great way for our community to connect. The all-abilities park will encourage meaningful play that will not exclude anyone. The City of Glenn Heights would like to celebrate the park as a beginning of bringing our community together with an inclusive play opportunity for everyone.

Design

The Park will be divided into age-appropriate areas based on physical skills and abilities. The Sensory area would be in the middle towards the entry to serve all age groups. The slides below depict the overall park design and park amenities, such as the entry, pavilion and picnic areas.
