OSWEGO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Oswego Mayor Billy Barlow was on hand to cut the ribbon on a new ADA accessible playground in the City of Oswego.
The playground, located in Hamilton Park, is designed to accommodate children aged five to 12 of all abilities and is wheelchair accessible, including a wheelchair-accessible swing.
Mayor Barlow said, “We’ve worked these last three years to make Oswego a more inclusive community and I believe we need to continue these efforts, making Oswego a better place for all. Representing and advocating for those with disabilities in our community is a cause I am personally passionate about and I intend to combine this passion with our efforts to improve our parks, making Oswego more unique than other nearby communities and being sure to consider all Oswego residents when making important decisions. I’m proud to open the ADA accessible playground at Hamilton Park and will continue finding ways to make Oswego more inclusive and more accessible to all moving forward.
