On March 3, 2012 the original Play for All Park opened with a community-wide celebration. After 5 years in the making, Central Texas Children of all abilities had a one of a kind park to play side by side without limitations. Making the park a reality has truly was a community-wide effort and a dream come true for the children of Central Texas and children across the nation.
The original park was made possible with the help from the entire community. The City was able to build this 1.3 million dollar park for $600,000 in City funding with the help of the Play for All Foundation a non-profit organization, as well as awarded grants, in-kind donations and sponsorships from local businesses.
The park has truly become a treasure and from opening day, millions have visited the park from Central Texas and across the nation. Throughout the year, children are bussed in from surrounding communities to enjoy this one of a kind park.
