Trillium Health Resources Awards Town $225,000 Grant for All-Inclusive Playground at Senator Jean Preston Memorial Park

The Town was recently awarded a $225,000 grant from Trillium Health Resources for the construction of an all-inclusive playground at the new Senator Jean Preston Memorial Park, to be located adjacent to the Emerald Isle Public Boating Access Facility.  The new playground will include playground components designed to serve children of all abilities, including those with special needs and/or served by wheelchairs.  The Town is grateful for these grant funds, and looks forward to providing a first-class play experience in a beautiful soundfront setting. 

 

The new Senator Jean Preston Memorial Playground will also include a new wooden walkway connecting to the existing soundfront pier and nearby restrooms, a new parking area, and attractive landscaping.  Construction is expected to occur in March, April, and May, with a planned opening date of May 25 -- the late Senator Preston's 81st birthday.
