Mankato Downtown Kiwanis Club wins Legacy of Play Contest

And the winner is...

Landscape Structures, Kiwanis Awards $25,000 to Minnesota Kiwanis Club

Kids of all abilities will come together for play with new inclusive playground

A fourth grader who uses a wheelchair will soon get to play on the playground with her friends. Her story helped convinced a panel of judges to award the Mankato (Minnesota) Downtown Kiwanis Club $25,000 worth of playground equipment in the Legacy of Play® Contest, sponsored by Landscape Structures Inc. and Kiwanis International.

Mankato, 75 miles southwest of Minneapolis, is renowned for its great parks and trails, and offers breathtaking landscapes of rivers, lakes, ravines, bluffs, natural prairies and forested areas. The $25,000 award will help complete the all-inclusive Fallenstein Playground, which is located adjacent to Fallenstein Field, the fully accessible baseball field used by the Miracle League of North Mankato, in Caswell Park.
