A Safe Place to Play

Once wrought with unsightly, overgrown foliage, weeds, and dangerous playground equipment, Korczak’s Gardens is now a beautiful, safe place for children of a nearby orphanage and a school for children with disabilities. Thanks to a US$40,366 LCIF grant, crews cleared land, installed a synthetic surface designed for safe play, and paved a new path so those in wheelchairs can also access and enjoy the grounds. More than 100 children now have a grassy play area filled with slides, swings, picnic tables, and creative playground pieces where they take part in fun, therapeutic activities.
