Seminole Park Wheelchair Swing

Seminole Park Wheelchair Swing

There are few things that compare to the smiles and laughter that emerge from a child swinging with their friends at the playground. Until recently, that experience has been out of reach to children in our community who are confined to wheelchairs. Seminole Lake Rotary purchased two wheelchair swings to make that experience possible for these children.

Seminole Lake Rotary used funds from the club foundation to purchase two wheelchair swings to be installed in our community. The first of these swings is in the process of being installed at Seminole City Park, which is located at 7464 Ridge Road, Seminole, FL 33772, just off of Park Blvd and 113th Street.

This project is being done in cooperation with the City of Seminole. The initial installation of the swing support frame was performed by volunteers from Seminole Lake Rotary and a City of Seminole construction supervisor. The swing will be completed in early 2015.

If you have friends or family with a child confined to a wheelchair, please spread the word about this new feature in Seminole City Park.
