City of Jackson Installs Wheelchair Accessible Swings in Public Parks

JACKSON, Tenn. - The city of Jackson is working to make its playgrounds more inclusive by installing wheelchair swings.

A new addition to a playground is bringing more inclusion.

The city of Jackson has just installed a heavy-duty wheelchair accessible swing at Malesus Park in south Jackson.

This is the city’s second wheelchair swing, and more are expected throughout the city.

While visiting another city, Mayor Scott Conger reports he saw wheelchair accessible swings and thought Jackson needed them too.

Park directors have helped put the swings together and install them.

The law reports the swings need to be kept separate from the rest of the playground, so people can respect and understand its only accessible to those in wheelchairs.

That is why a fence has been built around the swing to keep it reserved.

The city is working to give everyone a chance to enjoy its parks.

The first swing has been installed at North Park, and two more wheelchair accessible swings are expected to be installed in other parks soon.

Step by step, the city of Jackson reports it is working to bring enjoyment and entertainment to its parks and recreation centers for those with disabilities.
