New Downing Park Playground Ribbon Cutting New Downing Park Playground Ribbon Cutting

On Friday, June 19th, the Town of Yorktown held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the newly renovated Downing Park Playground. Construction of the new accessible, inclusive play area was made possible by a generous donation from The Gilbert Beaver Conference Farm. The new playground features drum, chime and horn panels, a garden arch, cruise line, cozy cocoon and sky tower. This playground is a new opportunity not just for kid with disabilities, but also their parents.
