Plano will unveil its newest playground on Monday, and there is truly something for everyone.[[420228083,R]]

The city’s first all-abilities playground will open at the new Jack Carter Park on Maumelle Drive, near Schimelpfenig Middle School.

The playground will have equipment that involves movement and climbing, as well as a mix of tactile, visual, and auditory features. It also has a variety of sensory experiences for healthy development.

The 2.61-acre park includes trail connections, a covered pavilion, water fountains, and picnic tables.

Park officials said they want it to be a place designed for children of all abilities to play, learn, and grow together.

The Plano Rotary Club donated $25,000 to the City of Plano Parks and Recreation Department last year to help fund the park project, and will donate another $25,000 at Monday’s ceremony.

The special dedication ceremony to honor the Plano Rotary Club starts at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the park.
