LCCS playground groundbreaking is Sept. 10

 

TOLEDO: A groundbreaking event for the new Lucas County Children Services (LCCS) playground will be held Friday, September 10, 2021 at 2 p.m. on the playground site.

 

LCCS is working with Friends of Lucas County Children Services, and other donors, to renovate the playground that is located behind the LCCS offices on 705 Adams St., Toledo. It’s a project that has been in the works for the past two years.

 

The LCCS Family Visits team uses the playground to hold supervised visits with birth parents and their kids who are in foster care or relative care. Those visits strengthen the bonds between the parent and child, while the parents work toward reunification with their family. The new playground will be inclusive for kids with all abilities.

 

Friends of LCCS began this project over two years ago, as they noticed the existing playground was desperately in need of an update. The nonprofit accepted grant awards to compile the necessary funding to complete the project. A donation from the Toledo Physicians of Indian Origins (TOPI) kicked off this campaign. This project is funded completely by donations and state and local grants.

 

Many community partners provided their expertise to help the steering committee design the playground, including Mom's House, Toledo Metroparks, The Ability Center, Wood County JFS, and others. The steering committee consisted of LCCS staff, Friends of LCCS, and community partners, all of whom have been meeting and researching the past couple of years to stay updated on this project.

 

One of those community partnerships was with the Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center and a Bowling Green State University summer art class. They brought a new outdoor mural to the inner walls of the play space.
