In late October, Westman Dreams for Kids unveiled plans for a brand new accessible park to be constructed this spring at Brandon’s Riverbank Discovery Centre. The park, to be constructed on the opposite side of the walking path from the Riverbank’s current playground, will feature a rubber surface for wheelchair accessibility as well as accessible variations of popular playground items such as a teeter totter and a spinner.
Part and parcel to that announcement was the beginning of a fundraising initiative to cover the $134,000 cost of construction.
A $67,000 donation was received by Westman Dreams for Kids thanks to Brandon’s Jacobson and Greiner Group of Companies and the Jacobson Family that will cover half of that entire cost of development.
