The McAuley Playground, located next to Mercy Kids Mid Rivers, is nearing completion. And, as with each Unlimited Play project, the organizations involved came together with the community last weekend to add some finishing touches to the equipment.
The McAuley Playground is an Unlimited Play all-abilities recreation space where limitations are forgotten and differences celebrated. 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. It's a partnership between Mercy Kids, Unlimited Play and the city of Cottleville.
