Dear Palo Alto Community.

We can't believe it... but MAGIC IS REALLY HAPPENING IN PALO ALTO!

The Magical Bridge Playground will be the most innovative inclusive playground in the country, finally meeting the needs of children and adults of ALL abilities - including those with autism, physical and cognitive limitations, sensory integration challenges, and visual impairments.

We are inviting the community to join and hear from Olenka Villarreal (founder of Magical Bridge), Palo Alto's Mayor Nancy Shepherd, Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian - and of course, hear from many families who will benefit the most from Magical Bridge.

We are expecting 200+ community members to join us at groundbreaking - all very excited to begin construction of Magical Bridge.

Date: Monday, June 23, 2014
Time: 11am to 11:30am PSt
