Pigeon Forge planning all-inclusive playground

A new playground in Pigeon Forge seeks to give everyone a chance to play.

On Wednesday, the Pigeon Forge Rotary Club unveiled plans for the next phase of the Wear Farm City Park.

The expansion will include several pieces of equipment designed to be accessible to anyone. It will be the first all-inclusive playground in the city.

Organizers want it to be a place where children of all abilities can play together.

"We're building it in phases. The second phase, which we're beginning today, is about a $300,000 addition which will add handicapped-accessible equipment along with regular equipment so that all children will be in the same location," said Jerry Wear of the Pigeon Forge Rotary Club.

The Pigeon Forge Rotary Club is donating $100,000 dollars toward the project. The rest of the money will be raised through community donations.
