The playground welcomes children with autism and other disabilities. According to the city, the park is specifically designed and will be located next to the Roswell Recreation and Aquatic Center at the east end of the Cielo Grande Recreation Area.

It will include a sensory garden, a small water structure that won’t overstimulate kids, and swings that can fit a wheelchair. The City of Roswell states that it is seeking contractors for the project and aims to begin construction in January.

The city currently estimates the project to cost $2.26 million with completion in May 2022.
