Accessable parks for the children of Folkestone, Kent!

This petition had 1,358 supporters

We have a new park for children in Folkestone's Radnor Park although this seemed as a brilliant investment and something really progressive for our town however there's one problem - NO accessible equipment for disabled children!
You've had a hard day, the kids want to let off steam and play with others, you want a safe area that they can play and get all their energy out? Perfect idea, go to the local family friendly park. But when you get there your baby that has battled so much, grown so much and wants to desperately to play, can't. You struggle to get him on the toys, your heart races as he falls over the inaccessible equipment and you both leave with heavy hearts after your play session turns into a 4 year old meltdown because he can't understand why it's just so difficult. 
Folkestone is a beautiful town and has seen many different developments over the years but yet again theres nothing for disabled or physically challenged children. As a culture we encourage inclusion, creation and adventure to our children. It's hard enough to teach this to adults let alone children that struggle to understand. 
We are all equal. 
We all deserve a chance.
We all need a change. 
This change would mean so much to not only our town but to our children. Please sign to help children adventure, play and grow in a safe environment for all.
