A few Abington Township Commissioners are embarking on a project to build an inclusion park somewhere in Abington. They are looking for a few high school students that are interested in construction, architecture or land planning to assist with that project. An inclusion park is a playground that is accessible and usable by ALL children, meaning disabled and abled alike. It involves complex ramping, as well as special equipment, but the end goal is that the separation that typically existed in the past between disabled and abled children is eliminated.
