Morgan's Wonderland

San Antonio, Texas has the NEATEST idea of an amusement park which is for folks with special needs. A father orchestrated it for his special needs daughter and others as there wasn't anything at other parks she could participate in due to her wheelchair.

What an concept he came up with and then was able to put together with donations, volunteers, etc.! The swings have compartments that the wheelchairs are rolled into and stablized/secured. The merry-go-round is also wheelchair accessible and has it's places for them to be secure and for family to sit alongside of their special needs person. It's remarkable.... genius!

There was a brief segment on the Nate Berkus show showing a short video. I was astounded that they've had visitors from 47 states and over 100,000 people! I'm IMPRESSED!

It was definitely time for this and he sure deserves one of the "Father Of The Year" awards for the work to develop it! I'm impressed and what a lucky girl to have this dad!
