Work on All-inclusive Playground Starts March 17

The Lake Monticello Community Foundation (LMCF) is ready to break ground at Lafayette Park! Groundbreaking for the All-inclusive Playground starts at 10 AM on Friday, March 17. The playground at Lafayette Drive will be taped off for several weeks while new equipment and landscaping are installed to enhance the play experience for children and parents with mobility and other limitations. In addition to new play equipment, the playground will be fenced in and a special ramp and path, making it accessible to children and parents with mobility limitations.

The LMCF, which is funding upgrades to the Lafayette playground, has come close to collecting the $100K needed to purchase special equipment and landscaping. It expects to collect the rest through fundraisers this spring, says LMCF President Nancy Parsons. Participants in the groundbreaking are to include LMOA President Larry Henson, Fluvanna County Supervisor Tony O’Brien, Del. Robert Bell, who is a contributor to the project, and Nancy Parsons.

LMOA and LMCF are working with the Fluvanna County School System to identify families who would benefit from an all-inclusive playground. We look forward to welcoming these families to our neighborhood.
