Imagine a park with kids of all abilities playing together building healthy relationships. Imagine a park with fun activities that are finally accessible to those who could not access them before. Seeing the vision of this park is easy, because it’s already been done. The pictures you see are from the original Common Ground Park in Lakeland, Florida. We will create it with some changes to fit our community.
To make this happen A Park Above, Inc. Foundation has partnered with the City of Vision : Rio Rancho, State of New Mexico, local business, and with plenty of support from the community. We can ALL be proud of this accomplishment! A Park Above board has been diligently working on this project for nearly 4 years. The Rotary Club of Rio Rancho has been very supportive in the conception of this project….

As Mayor Swisstack says, it takes a village. That is what we will do; build this incredible park through community effort, business support, county and state! We are working to have in place a perpetual fund should any equipment need to be replaced. This high tech park will be a destination for the entire community, where therapy, exercise & fun can happen with community pride.
