We are fundraising $750,000 to build Julia's Junction!
An environment where nobody is excluded from play as a result of their disability. Where caregivers with these disabilities feel comfortable visiting with their children. A 'junction' for our community to come together to make new connections through play!
Designed to accommodate all abilities & disabilities, whether physical, social, emotional, or cognitive, as well as friends and family of those with disabilities, Julia’s Junction will be a safe, and most importantly FUN space. Making friends, increasing self confidence, and building physical strength are just a few of the many important benefits of play, and everyone in our community deserves to experience that!
People with disabilities represent 5,500 residents in our community. That’s 1 in 6 people who live right here in West Kelowna! Including the families and friends of people with disabilities, there are close to 17,000 affected by the lack of fully inclusive playgrounds.
Double the fun! With the addition of Julia's Junction, Westbank Town Centre Park is going to be the destination for fun in West Kelowna,
and the entire Central Okanagan!
