Baltimore, MD - Nov. 29, 2021 - On Sunday, November 21st JEWELS reached another special milestone. We proudly cut the ribbon on a new inclusive playground. This space was designed in a manner that allows for ALL children to play side by side, regardless of any physical limitations. Aside from the recreational benefits, our therapists are eager to use the playground for PT and OT as well.
Many parents, staff, board members, elected officials, and students gathered in a festive atmosphere as State Delegate John Cardin and David Kelley cut the ribbon. The playground was filled with happy children climbing and bouncing around as everyone brimmed with pride and enjoyment.
This is the only such playground in the Pikesville area that can accommodate wheelchairs. JEWELS is grateful to Delegates Lisa Belcastro, John Cardin, Dana Stein, and State Senator Shelly Hettelman for sponsoring a Bond Bill to help pay for the playground. JEWELS is also grateful to David and Melissa Kelley, Keely and Jillian Goldberger, and the Slomo and Cindy Sylvian Foundation for their contributions, which have greatly assisted us in building this beautiful playground.
Everyone is invited to come and use the playground when school is not in session.
