May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month
Prior to designing the Lopes Playground Rebuild, we researched playgrounds for children. Therefore, the new design is all-inclusive, meeting the needs of children on the spectrum.
Playgrounds are a great way to spread the word about the benefits of being active. Physical activity is good for everyone's health. And people of all ages and body types can be physically active.

Help Build our Adaptive Playground
We are raising $500,000 to build an adaptive playground in Wareham. Of that, we have been given an estimate that the rubberized ground cover will cost about $200,000. It is essential for wheelchairs, walkers and carriages.

Helping Hands - Community Build - Working Together
(some events are in the planning stages)
♦ IMAGINE A PLAYGROUND ~~~
That services children of all ages and abilities and provides practice for all types of physical and social skills.
A playground that can accommodate wheelchairs, a playground with sensory equipment.
Take your kids to a playground and help them be active, get some exercise, practice balancing skills, meet new playmates, and have some FUN!!
♦ TIME TO GET SERIOUS ~~~
We need to raise funds to build a beautiful, all-inclusive playground as a community rebuild project for the current Lopes Playground.
Won't you help us? Attend our fundraisers. Buy personalized pickets and/or bricks. Whether you are an individual or a business, please consider making a donation!
