(KUTV) -- A new playground is making its debut Friday at Hill Air Force Base that is accessible to all children of all abilities.

The announcement of the "All Abilities Playground" is taking place at the inaugural Spouses Making a Difference Town Hall in HAFB's chapel.

My focus over the next year, will be on highlighting the need for all-abilities facilities for children on military installations, starting first at Hill AFB,” stated Michael Peters, the President of the Hill Spouses' Club, in a press release. “I am so proud of our local and national military spouse community for putting their weight behind this effort to make it a reality. Together we will build a place for children of all abilities. Not a ‘special needs’ playground rather a ‘special moments’ playground.

The Hill Air Force Base Spouses’ Club, in partnership with Wolf Creek Foundation, are going to be talking about the details of the playground at Centennial Park as well as celebrating the Month of the Military Child and all military spouses.

This event marks the beginning of an effort to give every child the opportunity to play and the group hopes to turn this project into a Department of Defense initiative to provide recreation areas where "all our children can discover connections, friendships, and resiliency," the release said.
