For over 2 years now, the board and staff of People for Parks has worked tirelessly with its Falls 4 All Committee to fundraise to build a universally accessible playground specially designed so that kids with disabilities can play side by side with their able-bodied peers. Now at 75% of its nearly million dollar goal, the organization continues in its fundraising efforts, with a deadline of early 2013 to complete the fundraising. True to its purpose, this has been a citizen-based effort, with numerous fundraisers, grant writing, and meetings with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board staff, all in an effort to make this much-needed playground (the FIRST of its kind in the Minneapolis Park System) a reality for the citizens of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Certainly People for Parks and its Falls 4 All Committee are to be commended for its dedication to this huge fundraising project for a universal access playground that will allow children and adults, both with and without disabilities, a place to challenge themselves, explore, interact and play, with independence and dignity, as a group or as individuals.

We are working with People for Parks to fundraise to improve the level of accessibility for a park reconstruction at the Wabun Picnic Area in Minnehaha Falls Park. The People for Parks Board has been very supportive in donating their time and talent to our cause. They have impressed me with their commitment to the improvement of the Minneapolis Park System and their fiscal responsibility.

The Great!

enjoying the many improvements that they championed in the Minneapolis Park System, such as the Lake Harriet Rock Garden, the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra concerts, the Lake Harriet Picnic Shelter, to name a few.

encourage others to become involved with their worthy causes, both financially and through a donation of their time.
