Wow! I am shocked that we have no such playground here.

We just moved from Ohio where we have inclusive parks and they are wonderful. I am in great support this gets built.

Kudos to this group,

Where are the start-up heroes in Palo Alto?

I'm not one of them but if I were, I would surely help this cause. Thanks Magical Bridge friends.
