(LaPorte, IN) - A new handicapped-accessible playground is about to open in LaPorte. The existing park across from Bethany Lutheran Church at 102 G St. has undergone a complete transformation. The park now has a soft surface with handicapped-accessible playground
Carrie Garwood with the church said the idea for the improvements stems from a child in a wheelchair having difficulty navigating the grounds and using the equipment. A grand opening ceremony is scheduled for Sunday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The cost of the improvements exceeded $500,000.
