Orem • A group of preschoolers handed a check Tuesday to City Council members to build a new, all-abilities playground.
Preschool students from the Playful Studies Preschool and Private Kindergarten donated $1,352.39 to be used for the All-Together Playground.
The playground will be built in Orem's City Center Park and is expected to open in September. According to its website, the all-abilities playground "will give all children in Utah County the chance to play, grow, and learn side-by-side" regardless of their age or abilities.
AshLee Winterrose's students were inspired by a friend, who uses a wheelchair, and the conviction that their friend needed a place to play, too, so they started fundraising.
