WVU Medicine and BOPARC have announced the Play for All Playground Project with the objective of transitioning existing Morgantown City Parks playgrounds into more accessible and inclusive spaces, creating cooperative play opportunities for all children.

The WVU Medicine and BOPARC Play for All Playground Project officially launched on Jan. 26 with a kick-off celebration at the Wiles Hill Community Building. The first playground being transitioned is in the Wiles Hill neighborhood.This play space was high on the priority list as it was deemed non-compliant on several federal safety guidelines. The renovation will begin this spring, and a "play date" to celebrate the opening of the playground will be scheduled sometime in June.
