WILMINGTON — The City of Wilmington is looking for community feedback ahead of applying for a grant that could transform one of its parks into becoming accessible for all abilities.
Administered through the NC Division of Parks and Recreation and the NC Parks and Recreation Trust Fund, the grant would supplement the city’s budgeted funds for a new playground at Maides Park.
It will provide funding to adapt existing facilities to meet the needs of children and veterans with physical and developmental disabilities. This also includes adding accessible walkway connections to the playground.
The city wants to hear from the public on Thursday, Aug. 11, at Davis Center at Maides Park, 1101 Manly Ave. The event will be a drop-in between 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
