Chloe Sunshine Playground Ground Breaking
Posted August 11th, 2014
Syracuse City will soon begin construction on a large handicap accessible playground. The playground is named after Chloe Bennett, a Syracuse City child. Chloe has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and West Syndrome which limit her ability to speak, walk, and to play on traditional playground equipment with other kids. This separation inspired Chloe’s mother, Tara Bennett, to gather support to create a place where Chloe and other children can play together. The future playground will bridge this gap making Chloe's dream a reality.
The playground will feature amenities that are specially designed to allow disabled and non-disabled children to play together. It will be built at Syracuse City’s Centennial Park. (approx. 1800 S 2000 W Syracuse UT 84075). Construction on the first phase is estimated to begin in August of this year and is slated to be completed in October.
A ground breaking ceremony is scheduled for 5pm on August 12th at Centennial Park. The playground will be a unique place for the children of Davis County and the City would like to thank all those who have made it a reality. All are invited to attend.
