NORFOLK, NE — Good news for kids that live in or around Norfolk as Embrace Park is nearing completion.
In between the YMCA and Pedal Park stands an inclusive park for Northeast Nebraska’s youth with different abilities.
Embrace Park was conceptualized by Norfolk Physical Therapist, Emily Afrank. Afank wanted the park to be built around inclusivity, to have a place where kids of all ages and abilities can come play. Afrank says the park will also double as a way for the kids to do therapy.
Since the weather has been corporative the park has stayed on track. Kids should be able to play on the park this month as planned.
Embrace Park is still taking donations and plans to build a splash pad for the kids a few steps away from the park.
