"Everybody Plays" Park in Pittsburg, KS.

On this week's episode of "Resource Central," Joe Reinecker interviews Independent Living Coordinator (ILC) Lou Ann Colyer about the "Everybody Plays" Park in Pittsburg, KS. A nine-year project (and ongoing), the "Everybody Plays" section of Schlanger Park has been made handicapped accessible. Colyer said grants have been received (and more have been applied for) to next repurpose an old tennis court, transforming it into a wheelchair-accessible basketball court. Other forthcoming projects include the establishment of a butterfly garden and the addition of a shelter.
