Equipment installed for Savannah's Playground at Market Common

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) - Work is well underway on Savannah's Playground at Grand Park after clearing phases were complete in early August.

Equipment for the first phase of the fully-accessible playground is being installed now, according to the City of Myrtle Beach. The site is adjacent to Crabtree Memorial Gymnasium, within the Market Common district off of Farrow Parkway.

Savannah's Playground, which is referred to as an "enabling park," will include a number of components, such as a music park, swings and a zipline, that will allow children with disabilities to take part.

The Myrtle Beach City Government states, "[the park] will provide the safe haven that children with physical and mental disabilities need."

A GoFundMe page has been set up for those wishing to donate to building the playground.

Savannah's Playground will be open year-round. The playground is named for 19-year-old Savannah Thompson, who plays soccer and baseball with the Grand Strand Miracle Leagues. Construction of the full 4-acre park will be done in three phases.
