Description

Millbrook has a lack of community playgrounds, especially ones that are accessibility focused. Our village is a growing community (population expected to double within 5 years) due to a new housing development that has started. We eagerly desire to meet the need of providing safe and exciting playground equipment. Being aware of some of the challenges that impact children with disabilities, we have focused on creating a playground that would be accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
We believe Millbrook Christian Assembly is uniquely positioned in the village to be home to such a park. By being located in the west end of the village, this would encourage new families coming into town to connect with the older side of Millbrook - an easy way to make connections.
This vision started with a tree that was naturally uprooted during the last winter storm of 2018. Once down and lying across the lawn, it organically became a playground for 15 or more kids on any given afternoon. Recognizing the tree was not the safest playground, we knew we needed to act swiftly in providing a playground the children would be proud to call their own.
