Ribbon cutting set for installation of special needs swing at Northway Park

Special to The Leader

The City of Orange will hold a special ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, April 10, 2017, to unveil the new special needs swing set equipment at Northway Park. The ceremony will take place at 4 p.m.

Northway Park’s special needs swing set is funded thanks to a grant from the Little Cypress Lions Club in celebration of 100 years of service. The Little Cypress Lions Club is a community service organization that has a great history of community support through donations, scholarships, and volunteer work. The newly installed playground equipment includes a ramp leading to the engineered wood fiber base which holds two ADA compliant swings.

“The Little Cypress Lions Club saw a need for special needs equipment from our experience at the Texas Lions Camp and through our involvement with Stay and Play at Little Cypress Intermediate. Our club wanted to give back to the community by donating this equipment to Northway Park where it can be used and enjoyed by the general public,” says Little Cypress Lions Club member, Paul Dickerson.
