A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
Lincoln Parks Foundation celebrated new, inclusive play equipment at Woods Park playground on July 22. The Iggy Borer Playground project was made possible by nearly 70 generous donors to honor the life of 6-year-old Ingrid “Iggy” Borer. Iggy reveled in time with her family, swinging the day away with her sister, and twin brother at the park, located in the heart of her beloved neighborhood. Through funds provided by Iggy’s family and the Lincoln community, Lincoln Parks Foundation and the Lincoln Parks & Recreation Department were able to fulfill the family’s dream of creating a space that is accessible to all and promotes inclusive play. Donations made in Iggy’s memory provided funds for a unity basket swing and set of interactive chimes on the east side of the playground. A rubber tile surface was extended to make the new pieces accessible to all.
