The City of Bowling Green recently held a ribbon cutting and grand opening for the new inclusive playground at Roland Bland Park on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

An inclusive playground is a space where children of all abilities can play with a wide range of physical, sensory and social experiences. Equipment is more accessible and inclusive for those with special needs or disabilities.

This project has been a public and private partnership between the City of Bowling Green, PNC Bank, United Way and the State.

Features include a poured in place surface made of recycled tires which allows no terrain limits, wheelchair accessible ramps, sensory elements and more. This playground is open to the public and boasts vibrant colors, a wide variety of equipment, multiple houses to play in and around, as well as traditional playground equipment.

The ribbon cutting was attended by community members, Chamber representatives, the United Way, City of Bowling Green staff and elected officials, and more. We are very proud of this project and look forward to it being an asset in our community for years to come.

Roland Bland Park is located next to the F.O. Moxley Center at 401 Center Street.
