Harmony Playground - Effingham Park District

The Effingham Park District has banded together with the community to build an inclusive playground that is accessible to all children, adults, and veterans including those with all needs.  Today that vision is a reality being enjoyed by the entire community. 

According to the Effingham Park District’s website, “Inclusive playgrounds benefit all children, regardless of ability:  It helps them develop a true and nuanced understanding of the world, to appreciate the differences between people and recognize the similarities that underlie them, to be tolerant of diversity and to accept others' perspectives. By giving children with and without disabilities a chance to play together, inclusive play spaces can serve as joyful incubators of a more inclusive society, in which children with disabilities can participate equally and enjoy equal opportunities to flourish.“

Harmony Playground was constructed on 7.6 acre located North of Evergreen Park on North Maple Street and  includes a pavilion and restroom facilities.  Milano & Grunloh Engineers, LLC was honored to be a part of this forward-thinking and barrier-breaking project. We were happy to be able to donate our services, such as surveying, site plan, detention/drainage calculations, construction staking, and material testing, to such a worthy cause.
