Construction Begins on McAuley Playground

December 19, 2016

COTTLEVILLE, Mo. - It's official! Ground was broken for the newest Unlimited Play Inclusive Playground, McAuley Playground. The name was chosen in recognition of Sister of Mercy Founder Catherine McAuley, who had special concern for children and women who were poor and underserved. The McAuley Playground, a place where limitations will be forgotten and differences are celebrated, is a partnership between Mercy Kids, Unlimited Play and the city of Cottleville.

The playground reached it's fundraising goal thanks to community and private donors and is scheduled to open late Spring 2017, weather permitting.
