The Autism Academy of SC was so happy to be a part of the groundbreaking ceremony for a Universal Inclusive Playground. (Thank you for including us) It’s the result of collaboration between the Saluda Shoals Foundation board, the Irmo Chapin Recreation Commission, several key donors and the family of Leo Bugenske.

Leo’s parents, Adam and Meredith, were the catalyst for this project when they asked whether Saluda Shoals could add accessible play equipment so all kids could enjoy the park.
