We are so proud & happy to announce that we have received a $500,000 Accessibility for Parks Grant from the Parks & Recreation Trust Fund towards the funding of a fully inclusive playground at Jennings Park! This multi-generational playground will be a wonderful addition to the gem that Jennings Park is set to become. The Iredell County Board of Commissioners have approved to match $100,000 of the grant, bringing the total funding for the playground to $600,000 as of today! 

We would like to thank everyone who came out & voiced their support for this project at every stage of the process. The playground received so much public support & we can't wait to watch the families of Iredell County & beyond enjoy it for years to come!
