Crews are working on Legacy Park, which will be housed in Lincoln Parish Park, so the parish will have a place where all children could come together and play. It will feature a few aspects that will set it apart from other playgrounds, such as playground equipment that will sit higher off the ground so that children in wheelchairs will be able to roll underneath and play with their friends.
The park will also have equipment to help other special needs children such as high-back swings, so children will have added support if needed.
