A San Antonio Park for Special Needs Kids

The worlds first (according to the folks at Morgan's Wonderland) Family Fun Park for special needs kids will be a reality in about two months. It was the vision of Gordon and Maggie Hartman, parents of a daughter (Morgan) with special needs to create this 25 acre park in San Antonio, Texas. They have called it Morgan's Wonderland and will have its grand opening on April 10th. Morgan's Wonderland's mission is "to provide a park that will nurture the minds and bodies of individuals with special needs and their families".
"We believe that there is a real need for a special place for special people, one that provides an oasis for people with disabilities, their families and caregivers who need facilities specifically designed to assist them in enjoying outdoor activities."
The park has been dubbed by Gordon as a kind of mini-Disney for special needs kids and some of the activities and amenities include:

•Train Rides
•Ultra Accessible Carousel
•Catch-and-Release Fishing
•Water Canons and Remote-Controlled Boats
•Music Garden
•Sand Circle™
•Gymnasium (basketball, volleyball and tennis)
•Water Works - Water Play Area
•Sensory Village™
•Several Rest Stops, Picnic areas.

The full list can be found on their website: http://www.morganswonderland.com/
