IFCK Lexington playground program
Injury Free Coalition for Kids of LexingtonWith additional help from Allstate, Little Tikes, the Division of Parks and Recreation, neighborhood associations and other partners, we built two IFCK community playgrounds. We built lasting relationships with those neighborhoods with whom we partnered on playgrounds, and with the Division of Parks and Recreation, who have called us to help with other community playground builds since. We continue to be involved in maintenance of those playgrounds and in efforts to support community events in those neighborhoods.
Our IFCK site has become a playground safety resource for child care centers in our community. We have been awarded a small amount of funding through a grant to provide training and consultation on playground safety for identified child care centers in the Bluegrass region of Kentucky.
