Winona has 27 parks and 14 playgrounds; however, there are no playgrounds that meet the needs of the physically or developmentally challenged individuals. The playground proposed by Every Child’s Dream – Winona will replace the existing playground adjacent to the bandshell in Lake Park. The targeted completion date is June 15, 2019, which will be just in time for Steamboat Days, the Kiddie Parade and concerts at the bandshell.
The Lions wish to thank Dahl for its generosity and to all who gave financial support. Together, the community is making this dream come true. The equipment has already been ordered and the play structures are being removed. The next phase will be the site preparation, followed by the installation of the matting surface and placement of equipment. All this will be capped off by the smiles and laughter of all the children. Who says dreams don’t come true?
