Sen. Fred Akshar Unveils New Harpursville CSD Inclusive Playground
Akshar was able to secure $135,000 in last year's State Budget for the improvements to make the playground more accessible and enjoyable for children of all abilities. Upgrades include ADA-friendly wheelchair ramps, slides, structures and a new rubberized playground surface.
The idea for the project came from Harpursville CSD parent Sierra Kulas, who contacted Senator Akshar's office with the project in December of 2016.
The $135,000 was allocated through the State and Municipal Facilities Program of the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY).
