(LaPorte, IN) - A new handicapped-accessible playground is open in LaPorte. A grand opening ceremony was held yesterday at LaPark. It’s across from Bethany Lutheran Church located at 102 G Street in LaPorte. There’s a soft rubber surface, handicapped-accessible playground equipment and a splash pad featuring buckets of water dumped on users. Pastor Dennis Meyer says the park open to the entire community is much better than the one there previously.
The park is open to everyone from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. About a half-million dollars in donations was raised to build the park.
