We, at the Make An Impact Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to promoting the education and well-being of underserved children nationwide, announced the opening of a new playground today at Walsh Park in Mobile, Alabama.

The new playground features play equipment from Miracle Recreation, a pioneer in manufacturing thrilling playgrounds for nearly a century. Play activities include classic equipment such as climbers, overhead events and slides, and innovative elements like the Accelerator Swing, an inclusive group swing, and the Mini City Community Helpers, which provides younger children a fun and friendly playhouse.

“Making an impact in children’s lives is a priority for our Foundation,” explained Dale Gillmore, Founder and Board Chairman of Make An Impact Foundation. “We’re excited to expand our national kids play project to Southwest Alabama and partner with these amazing organizations, to make an impact in Mobile.”

Make An Impact Foundation partners with organizations to create places where all kids have equal opportunity and ability to play freely without barriers. To make this exciting new play space a reality, Make An Impact Foundation worked with FOX10 and the United Way of Southwest Alabama to bring together community partners committed to serving the families of Mobile. This new playground is made possible through amazing businesses of Mobile, including: Shoe Station, EcoSouth, Palmer’s Toyota Superstore, and Palmer’s Airport Hyundai.

A public grand opening celebration is scheduled for 4-6pm today at Walsh Park, located at 1401 Windsor Avenue. DJ Party Animal will be on hand, spinning some family-friendly tunes to further add to the excitement of this new playground opening. Students, teachers and faculty from Maryvale Elementary, located a few blocks from Walsh Park, will take part in the celebration.
