Show LMCC we need a variety wheelchair swing at Bernie Goodwin Park Morisset

This petition had 420 supporters

I started this partition because i would like for my daughter to be able to go to the park with her friend who is a wheelchair user and her aunt who also uses a wheelchair and for them to be able to play together instead of watching from the side line.  Bringing the simple pleasure of swinging on the swings at the park with the other kids is priceless. Having this facility closer to home for kids/adults in wheelchairs will make it easier for parents and carers to take their kids, friends,or loved ones to the park, without having to plan for a day or a half day trip. Just a spontaneous trip to the park in spare time,something most take for granted.

Its not only people who use a wheelchair who benefit from the liberty swing, people with intellectual disabilities  also enjoy the liberty swing as it provides a seat with seat belt and added security of not being able to fall out. The liberty swing also can be used for people who are too big for a conventional swing as they can fit comfortably in the seat.  

About how many people use the facility? If there are accessible facilities and equipment ie variety wheelchair swing, i believe the whole community would use the facility in one way or another.
