SMITHFIELD – The Partnership for Children Park – A Place for All will soon be celebrating its 5th anniversary with a new addition – a children’s stage. On Saturday, April 15th the Partnership for Children of Johnston County will host a Stage Grand Opening Celebration to showcase how the space will be used to promote imagination and creativity though children’s programming such as storytelling, interactive dance, and musical performances. Located at 600 East Booker Dairy Road in Smithfield, the event will be held from 10:00 am till 1:00 pm with free entry, art in the park, face painting, performances, food and more!
The park began as a shared vision between the Partnership for Children of Johnston County’s Board of Directors and The Miracle League of Johnston County that all children, regardless of ability, should be able to play together, in one space. This vision became reality in 2018, following seven years of planning and fundraising, when the Partnership for Children Park opened as the first play space in Johnston County allowing access to children of all abilities to explore, play, and learn. The complex helps to serve the over 6,000 children with special needs in the county, as well as surrounding areas by providing the opportunity to play like other children, without having to worry about accessibility. The park offers a variety of robust playground equipment, open natural areas, and now a stage – constructed by Gray Wolf Homes – all in the effort to include and promote the development of all children.
