LENIHAN PROPOSAL SEEKS BARRIER-FREE PLAY SITES

Wheelchairs and braces would not be a barrier for handicapped children wanting to enjoy a day at the park, according to a proposal by Erie County Legislator Leonard R. Lenihan.

Lenihan, D-Town of Tonawanda, and the Legislature's majority leader, has proposed a "park for all children," where handicaps would not prevent access to a good time. Lenihan said he wants to study the feasibility of building one or more playgrounds where all children could enjoy swings, merry-go-rounds and slides.

Lenihan called for creating a task force to find a location and develop plans for the specially equipped, barrier-free playground, with the goal of obtaining funding in the 1991 county budget.
