Minnesota Moment: Burnsville Mom Helps Make Accessible Playground Possible

September 06, 2017 10:56 PM

A Minnesota mom helped create an accessible playground in the city of Burnsville.

Lisa Sardinha said the idea came after she saw her daughter sitting on the side of a playground at a local elementary school. When Sardinha asked why her daughter was not able to play on the playground, staff said they felt it was too dangerous for her.


Sardinha spent two years working with the school district and community to make the playground happen.

She said U.S. Bank and the Minnesota Vikings donated to help make the park possible.
