Build Jake's Place builds "playgrounds for everybody." Playgrounds where children in wheelchairs and other assistive devices can play along side others with ease. Even parents and grandparents with a disability can play and interact with their children or grandchildren.
PLAY IS IMPORTANT!
When children play together they learn how to interact, make important choices, and to have fun with one another. Until Jake's Place was created many local children with disabilities were rarely seen at a playground because there was no way to join in the fun.
WE'VE CHANGED THAT!
An all-new redesigned Jake's Place All-Inclusive Playground is coming to Delran. It will be constructed at the Delran Community Park some time in the near future. We are hard at work raising funds for the new Jake's Place, but we need your help! We are looking for grants and donations to help build our new playground. Our award-winning Jake's Place All-Inclusive Playground in Cherry Hill, NJ was funded by donations and built by community volunteers. Now is your opportunity to help us build a second all-access Jake's Place Playground to help children with special needs in Burlington County.
