Swing at Vets Park–a new opportunity for fun

A fun, safe swing for young people in wheelchairs is the latest addition to the playground equipment at Veterans Memorial Park.

On August 23, city officials debuted the swing, and Kaci Schwiefert of Rossford enjoyed the first ride.

The device allows a wheelchair to be rolled up a ramp at the rear of the swing that folds up and is secured with chains so the chair doesn’t move.

The daughter of Connie and Walt Schwiefert, Kaci, 19, attends Wood Lane school.

“The swinging motion is so soothing for a child with special needs,” Mrs. Schwiefert explained.
