March 8th, 2022– Wyandotte County, KS:  Variety KC and Legend’s Field announce the ground-breaking of the new All Inclusive Baseball Themed Playground at Legend’s Field. It’s part of the inclusive makeover at the field, including the new improved playground, adult-sized changing tables in restrooms, accessible parking signs, communication and sign language boards, ramped seating for up close field experience, sensory kits for checkout and accessible website updates.  These improvements will make it possible for more families to experience games at Legends Field and to enjoy the experience longer.

This playground, the latest in inclusive remodels with Variety KC, all started because of one girl – Olivia. (Pictured below) Olivia was excluded from playing with her friends on the playground because she uses a powerchair. The loose mulch on playgrounds can destroy the mechanics of this ten-thousand-dollar chair. Because of this surface and other barriers, all of which are technically ADA compliant, Olivia was left out.

Variety KC works with their partners, such as Legends Field, to go above and beyond what is ADA compliant – and create play spaces that encourage all kids to play and interact together.
