The Ripon Noon and Early Bird Kiwanis Clubs are partnering with Fond du Lac County to raise funds for an All-Inclusive Playground at Riggs County Park.
The playground will be home to over 40 features, including swings, climbers, slides and spinners; with many of the equipment being designed to be used by children of all abilities. The poured, rubberized safety surface will ensure the playground will have be ADA-accessible.
Research findings have consistently shown the incredible benefits of inclusive playgrounds. They foster social interaction, promote physical activity, and enhance cognitive development among children of all abilities. By supporting our campaign, you can help us make these advantages accessible to every child in our community.
The playground will sit adjacent to the Splash Pad, in the section of the County Park accesible from Douglas Street. The Splash Pad itself was a project of the Rippon Noon Kiwanis, in Partnership with Fond du Lac County.
