This week Upstate Shredding awarded their $2,000 grant for Southern Tier Tuesday’s to the Kirkwood Inspiration Playground. The playground is being designed to be an all inclusive handicap accessible playground located in Kirkwood.
Katie Legg, chairman for the Kirkwood Inspiration Playground Committee, said the idea came from her realization that Kirkwood had no handicap accessible playground. “I gathered a few friends and we formed a committee called the Friends of Kirkwood Park and we started doing some research and came up with a proposal and went to the town board with that proposal,” Legg said. While the project is still in the fundraising stages, Legg added that the $2,000 grant will be put toward reaching their goal of $350,000.
