I , like most of you all, have been blessed to have grown up a happy, perfectly healthy "normal" childhood with my brother and sister. I didn't fully realize until today just how much kids who have special needs miss out on, childhood staples like swinging and playing in a sandbox at the playground are near impossible for kids relegated to a wheelchair.....until now!
Morgan's Wonderland, located in San Antonio, Texas is a 26 acre park created specifically for children and adults who have special needs of all kinds. They dub themselves "The world's first ultra accessible family fun park". Complete with a sensory village, wheelchair accessible...everything (from bathrooms, to the ampitheater, to play scapes, even sandboxes!), even monitoring bracelets for security.
The amazing thing is that these kids and their families and caretakers finally have a place to enjoy and partake in so many of the little things we assume all kiddos get to do!
Check out their website and tell someone you know about this amazing place!
