Public-Private Partnership

"The PlayGarden is an amazing place for children of all ages and especially for those with disabilities. "We are truly honored to have been able to contribute to the development of the PlayGarden. It is easily accessible even for children in wheelchairs and provides surrounding neighborhoods with a beautiful amenity."- Ken Bounds, former Seattle Parks and Recreation Department Superintendent.
