Narnia comes to life for blind child

Great story from my friend Phillip Murrell.

Today, we got a look at The Lions Narnia Braille Trail.

It’s the second phase of Darrell’s Dream Boundless Playground at Warriors’ Path State Park in Kingsport.

The new addition is a Braille trail that surrounds the existing playground.

It features eight sensory stations telling a story based on “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” fantasy by C.S. Lewis.

The playground, along with today’s new addition, is a place where children of all abilities can enjoy nature.

“We think it’s important to provide….remove barriers for people who are blind and vision impaired and to removed those barriers so they can play right alongside and learn from one another and their friends,” said Lions Club President Doug Haseltine.

The additions at the boundless playground don’t end with the Lions Narnia Braille Trail.

A tree house will open this fall. It will be accessible to children with and without disabilities.
