Eagle Scout Project Idea: Make a Playground Handicap-Friendly

The playground at a school in South Vienna, Ohio, used to be full of tiny gravel, preventing kids with physical disabilities from reaching some of the equipment.

Not any more.

Thanks to Noah McLeod, a former student at the school and member of Troop 24 in Urbana, Ohio, all of the children at the school can now play together. For his Eagle project, Noah planned, designed and installed a sidewalk to make the equipment accessible to kids in wheelchairs.
