Wheelchair accessible playground opens in Prestonsburg

PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - A grand opening ceremony was held at Archer Park for a new playground on Saturday.

The new playground is wheelchair accessible and organizers say the playground is long overdue.

The playground includes swings, monkey bars, and picnic tables that are all easily accessed by wheelchairs.

Michelle Ratliff says, "It ensures that no one will have to sit and watch. There is playground equipment for siblings and swings for adults that accompany any of the kids that come."

The playground was donated by the East Kentucky Gearheads Car Club and sponsored by CSX Transportation
