SPARKS, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Sparks city leaders cut the ribbon on the city's newest park this morning.
Mayor Geno Martini and members of the Sparks City Council were all on hand for a special ribbon cutting ceremony at the all abilities playground at Pah Rah Mountain Park. Children of all ages and abilities can swing, climb, spin and much more in the fully integrated play environment.
The City of Sparks worked with Recreation Republic, Inc. to create the accessible area for children with disabilities to play, learn and interact together.
The City of Sparks identified Pah Rah Mountain Park as a central location for children with special needs enrolled in programs at Jerry Whitehead, Marvin Moss and Bud Beasley elementary schools.
The 9,500 square foot playground has an artificial turf surface to make it easily accessible for all users. The project's $503,000 budget was financed within the City of Sparks Capital Improvement Plan.
