The Lions Club of Trenton is receiving $10,000 from Trenval’s Community Economic Development program as a contribution towards the all-inclusive playground that will break ground in early summer 2022.

“The primary objective of the all-inclusive playground is to allow youth and seniors to feel independent and foster better health. This funding from Trenval will go towards equipment that will build agility and strength thru exercise in the outdoors allowing all individuals to feel part of the community”, said Lion Mike Seymour.

The location of the all-inclusive playground will be located on land supplied and maintained by the City of Quinte West on Bay Street, Trenton, on the east side of Club 105. The equipment will feature avenues for local youth and mature adults to use their minds to build self-confidence with physical activity and will be ideal for people with disabilities.

“Organizations such as the Lion’s Club contribute to a wide variety of programming in the community and we are pleased to provide a contribution to this playground project that will build capacity for building economic growth locally and fosters the increase for individuals of all ages and circumstance be able to participate”, said Amber Darling, Executive Director of Trenval.

The location of the all-inclusive playground is ideal as it has access to a comfort station that is already designated accessible and is frequented by many residents for soccer games and other community events.

The Lion’s Club continues to raise funds for the $600,000 project. Interested parties can contribute on the Go Fund Me page https://ca.gofundme.com/f/trenton-lions-club-inclusive-playground.
