All Together Albert Lea
Mission Statement

The goal of the All Together Inclusive Playground and Miracle Field is to create a place for people of all ages and abilities to come together.  A place to experience the joy of play, in a safe yet challenging environment, regardless of their physical abilities or sensory issues. Outdoor play is a significant part of childhood and can promote  physical, social and emotional skills. Children develop behaviors based on what they touch, see, hear, taste, smell and how they move and position their body in space. Sensory rich playgrounds allow them to integrate and develop their senses. The more they play, the more they develop skills necessary to engage, change and impart the world around them. Families will be able to come together to interact and socialize, all while bonding and learning from each other. We hope by bringing a diverse inclusion playground that creates more equity in our community we will have a wide array of positive interactions between community members in Albert Lea and the surrounding areas.  All Together will be a place where multiple generations individuals can learn, play, and grow.

 

We are hoping to break ground in the spring of 2023.

Location

Will be located in Edgewater Park north of the new Bay Pavillion
