We reached out to our community and we you know sort of asked questions and said what are the things that you love about parks that you’ve been to in Colorado or outside Colorado or things that you hate that just don’t work.

Rachel: And she came home for about two weeks in a row crying every day because she didn’t have anyone to play with her at the playground. So, we went and watched her at school, and we had a conversation with her that there was a difference between kids not wanting to play with her and her not being able to play.

Rachel voiceover: And so now she’s got a place where she can go and play with everyone else and she doesn’t have to worry about steps, and she can be on the equipment and she can just be like every other kid.
