Kennesaw city officials have delayed the Grand Opening Celebration for the Inclusive Playground at Swift-Cantrell Park from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. Jan. 9.

The city of Kennesaw and Kennesaw Parks & Recreation invite area residents to attend this event at Swift-Cantrell Park, 3140 Old 41 Highway NW.

The current playground features nine slides, 11 swings and a main play structure that has 100 feet of American Disabilities Act ramps and sensory boards, according to a city statement.

Four play structures will add about 5,000 square feet that have been unused.

This area will include a main play structure that has wheelchair-accessible ramps, leading to a ropes tower, sensory stations, an eight-person wheelchair sway fun and a slide.

The ramp system also will lead to pod climbers, a tunnel system and climbing apparatuses.

This main play structure has 40 feet of shade.

All of the 18,500-square-foot space will be made accessible to all by removing the wood chips and installing turf.

Every child will be able to maneuver the entire space.
