The Colts Neck Lions Club is moving along with plans to build a play area for the blind, visually impaired, and multiple disabled. Play is particularly important for children with visual impairments and other challenges as it contributes to their growth and development through increased mobility and social interaction. Although the equipment and features are specially designed for children who are blind or visually impaired, we are confident they will appeal to all children who visit the playground, including children in our community. Interaction among children of all abilities is beneficial to all.
The new section of the playground will be named the Lions Sensory Den, and it will be an extension to the current Challenger playground at Dorbrook Park. The term “sensory” is important when describing the playground features, as many of the items being added involve senses other than vision. Musical instruments like xylophones and drums will enhance this space.In addition to these and other audible features, we will also be including misting columns.
We need your help to raise $125,000 to make this state of the art playground extension a reality at Dorbrook Park. We are asking you to help reach our goal with any donation at all. All donations are tax deductible. Here are three ways to donate:
