The playground enhancements began with a promise from Walmart to donate money to PATH, the school’s parent-teacher organization, to update the playground.

“We found that our current playground had little equipment for our oldest children and also our children with mobility limitations,” said Anne Nelson, chairwoman of the playground committee.

Horizon is adding a ball and jump rope cart as well as five new pieces of equipment, chosen with input from Horizon gym and special education teachers to challenge children of all abilities.

There will be an adaptive swing and an amazing nine-person wheelchair-accessible seesaw with four adaptive chairs, Nelson said. Older students will be challenged by a triple ring fling, a tightrope walk and four balance pods.

“We are very excited about the additions to our playground and would like to thank our Horizon families for supporting PATH during all our various events throughout the years,” Nelson said.

In addition, PATH received generous donations from six local Plymouth businesses: Walmart, Van Horn, Masters Gallery, Rhode Brothers, Sargento and Plymouth Foam.

PATH also thanks Todd Kleinhans for the tireless labor he volunteered to the construction site, including cutting asphalt.
