New Autism-Friendly Playground Opening This Month In Bucks County | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

The playground is at Potential, a non-profit organization located at 170 Pheasant Run in Newtown. It will open on Saturday, April 21. A grand opening event is planned from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. During the special event, children will be able to use the playground. Snacks and beverages will also be available.

 

Kristine Quinby, founder, president and CEO of Potential, said she is excited for the new playground to open. "Learning to play (with others) and playing to learn (social interaction) is a real benefit to children with autism," Quinby said. "We wanted to make this securely-fenced playground available to the community, free of charge, during evenings and weekends, when it is not in use by our clients," she said in a statement.
