Reasons to love Kayla’s Playground

Whenever I visit Franklin’s jewel, Kayla’s Playground, I make it a point to stop and  look at the posted proclamation written by Franklin Mayor Steve Olson. It opens by stating Kayla Runte’s “much-too-short and precious life inspired an entire community to develop a playground that celebrates joy and inclusion.”

That it does.

Kayla’s Playground goes beyond federal requirements for playgrounds by providing not one but three types of play.

And this wonderful spot also addresses the worry for many that today’s playgrounds have become less adventurous.

The article never mentions Kayla’s Playground, but has Kayla’s Playground written all over it.

  1. I’m pleased to tell everyone that our City Engineer Glen Morrow and Kayla’s Krew Director Shelly Runte have been asked to make a keynote presentation to the American Public Works Association national convention in August about Kayla’s Playground and the benefits of the all-accessible, all-inclusive playground. They’ve given this presentation to the regional chapter and I believe they’ll also be presenting to the Wisconsin League of Municipalities statewide convention as well. Franklin has a gem and should be extremely proud of the accomplishment, but moreover, the fact that we’re a leader in including the less abled in our playgrounds and lives.
