HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Hastings first all inclusive playground is set to open on Wednesday night. But before the general public got the chance to play on it, a group of early childhood professionals got the chance.

The event was a joint venture between the City of Hastings and the United Way of South Central Nebraska. Early Childhood Community Coordinator with the United Way, Wendy Gwennap, said she is excited to celebrate with some of the most essential workers.

“A new playground is so exciting and having the honor to open it up to people who pour their heart and soul into children is rewarding,” Gwennap said.

The playground itself is design for everyone to have fun, no matter your ability level. Amanda Scott with the city of Hastings says it is important to honor teachers’ hard work before the general public get to play on the playground.

“Hosting basically a sneak peek for their childhood centers and early childhood education centers just to thank them for all their hard work,” Scott said.
