Williamsport opens new playground for children with disabilities

Byron Park in Williamsport opened up a new playground Friday morning.
The playground took over a year to complete and is the first fully inclusive ramp structure in the county.
Students from Marshall Street School helped city officials with the ribbon cutting. The playground is wheelchair accessible, so children can access different heights. It also includes other structures for many different types of disabilities.

“Ground level panels that are interactive for all disabilities, they make sound they whistle there’s a turning beads, we use port and play surfacing which is a rubber surface that is accessible for wheelchairs and walkers,” Brandon Orff said, from Cunningham Recreation. Town officials say there are plans to upgrade other playgrounds in the park.
