About the Playground
The playground build was completed on time and under budget! We want to thank all of our donors and volunteers for their support. The Kiwanis Centennial Playground is the area’s first inclusive playground and has provided an opportunity for ALL to enjoy, regardless of any physical, mental or sensory needs. There are no playgrounds like this for over 120 miles. This playground has been a huge benefit to the Quincy area community, and has become an attraction for families in the entire tri-state area.
About Lincoln Park Shelter House
The construction and completion of the Kiwanis Centennial Playground was a true community effort and achievement. The playground is also a testament to the Kiwanis Clubs’ on-going commitment to serve ALL children. However, our work is not finished, as we quickly realized that the popularity of the playground generated a new need. This is why we have again partnered with the Quincy Pak District to tackle our next project, the Lincoln Park Shelter House. This facility will be constructed just east of the Kiwanis Centennial Playground and will feature ADA accessible restrooms, picnic tables, electricity, a water fountain and concrete floors. It is our hope and desire that this facility compliment the playground, while enhancing the park’s ability to serve all populations.
The total cost of the project is $400,000 with the Quincy Park District providing half of the funds. Our goal is $200,000 by the end of summer. Please help us by making a donation today.
