Gallatin Parks and Recreation plans to convert one of the city’s softball fields into an all-inclusive park that would be accessible for children and adults with special needs.The department has already begun 3fundraising efforts for the Gallatin Miracle Park, which would be built across from the soccer complex at Triple Creek Park. The project would include a miracle field, inclusive playground and a peddle park for children to learn how to ride a bike safely.It would be the first one of its kind in the city, according to David Brown, director of Gallatin Parks and Recreation.
There are more and more people who have a need for this and everybody has realized that we need to do more,” Brown said about the project. “This would not only be for kids, but it would be for all ages.”
The miracle field would be wheelchair accessible and feature an artificial turf field without dirt or raised bases while the inclusive playground would feature wheelchair swings, an easy-to-ride zipline, merry-go-round, game board and musical instruments, among other features.
The Gallatin Miracle Park is estimated to cost between $1.5 and $2 million, which would include sidewalks, bathrooms, bleachers, scoreboard, concession stand and landscaping, in addition to the miracle field, inclusive playground and peddle park, according to Brown.
