Miracle Park is unique because it follows the principles of universal design
The new park is a first of its kind within the US. It is now officially the newest member of the ‘Miracle League’ – a national sports league that started about 20 years ago as a baseball team for children with disabilities.
“Because you don’t come to this park and play because you have special needs, this park is for all. For once, there is a park that truly is for all.” – Community Speaker Miracle Park
