In 2016, a new accessible playground will open in McKinney, just ten minutes from the El Dorado Mazda dealership. We’re so proud to be located in a city whose Rotary Club and city government respond to the needs of McKinney’s disabled children, who make up 10% of the students enrolled in the McKinney Independent School District.
The McKinney All-Abilities Playground will be in Bonnie Werk Park, and construction will begin in spring of 2016, with the playground opening in the second half of the year. The playground will include a wide variety of unique equipment to make it accessible to children with physical disabilities as well as developmental disabilities, from wheelchair users to children living with muscular dystrophy to children with Down’s Syndrome and autism.
The project was approved by the city council in late September. The city will provide the funding to build the playground and will also maintain the park once it opens. Bonnie Werk Park will be expanded with special bathrooms, more parking spaces for vans and buses for group trips, and wheelchair ramps. Over the months, the Rotary Club and city have raised over $560,000 from McKinney citizens to build the park.
While you are in the area, you can stop by El Dorado Mazda for all of your Mazda vehicle needs!
