Silver Summit All-Abilities Playground at McCormick Park
Per the McCormick Park Master Park Plan adopted in 2003, this project will replace the park's aging playground with a modern, accessible, inclusive playground that meets all applicable codes and is fun and engaging for all ages.
The new playground brings the latest inclusive play technology to Missoula—including play features for children with sensory, cognitive and multiple disabilities–and expands on the vision of the Bonner Park All-Children's playground, which was built 25 years ago. The playground is slated to open in August, 2014. The All-Abilities Playground Project continues to raise funds to expand the playground. Learn more at The Playground Project.
