Madison’s Place in Woodbury named best adaptive playground by Pediatric Home Service

June 17, 2019

Madison’s Place, a fully-accessible destination playground in Woodbury, MN, has been named the best adaptive playground for the second year in a row by Pediatric Home Service (PHS). The playground was created through the Madison Claire Foundation, a nonprofit founded by Paul’s Pals very own Accessible Play Specialist, Dana Millington!

The Madison Claire Foundation serves children and families living with disabilities by creating fully accessible “inclusive” playgrounds that reach beyond the limitations of traditional playgrounds. Millington created the organization after her daugher Madison passed away from complications due to Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) at age two. Learn more about Madison and her family’s story here.

Madison’s legacy lives on through the 16,000 square foot Madison’s Place, the Twin Cities’ East Metro’s first accessible playground.

Madison’s Place is among a list of other local best places for families with special needs in Minnesota, including Gooseberry Falls State Park, Mall of America, Camp Friendship, Target Field and many more. See the full list of PHS’s 2019 top spots in Minnesota for families with special needs.
