Garrison’s Place, opened in 2014, includes specially designed swings and zip lines. The playground was made possible through a $25,000 grant from the Byerly Foundation, whose contribution has helped create yet another asset for a facility-filled recreation complex which already stood as a lasting testament to the Foundation’s generosity toward this community.

The playground’s equipment includes a wheelchair platform swing, adaptive swings, and an adaptive zip line all suited for children with disabilities.

Local parents Melissa Shumate and Angela Murph, who work at the local Children’s Rehabilitation Center, brought the idea for this playground to the City and worked with us to make it happen. Angela is the mother of six-year-old Garrison Murph, the namesake of the playground, who we hope will be having a great time playing in it this summer.
