In Marshall Park
The Arboretum Playground Project
The latest phase of the Arboretum Playground Project is now complete and includes the installation of playground pieces specifically designed for children with sensory deficits and other developmental issues.
The panels installed include:
- a sensory clock panel
- a rain sound panel
- an alpha maze in Braille
- a bongo/xylophone panel
- a marble panel
Fun panels for children — with or without disabilities — to enjoy!
In addition to the Dubuque Lions Club, other major donors to the project include: The Dr. Edward Scott Memorial Fund, Walmart, Theisen’s, Hager Industries, the City of Dubuque, DABG, Manders Concrete, and individual Dubuque Noon Lions members. [Most of the hands-on work was done by members of the Dubuque Noon Lions Club.]
The Lions Club hopes the equipment brings together children with a variety of abilities and needs on one very fun playground.
Located in Marshall Park, the children’s playground and equipment were donated and constructed by the Dubuque Noon Lions Club. The area also features open air tables with grills. Restroom facilities are nearby.
We’re grateful to members of the Dubuque Noon Lions Club for their fun and valuable contribution to this wonderful property.
