Earlhamites deliver on plan to build city's first playground for all children

A team of Earlhamites have delivered on their plan to bring a first-of-its-kind playground to the Richmond area.

“Playground with a Purpose,” a play space built for children with special needs, is now open at Clear Creek Park thanks to the collective efforts of Caleb Smith, Peniel Ibe, Truman McGee, Rachel Logan-Wood and Regan Lowring. The five Environmental Studies majors earned bachelor's degrees from Earlham College in May 2017.
