“I visited the park today and my son played with a 3 year old little girl who was there with her grandpa who is an amputee/wheelchair user. What a perfect park for him to bring his grand-daughter to! Because of the park’s wonderfully accessible design he was able to fully interact with his sweet grand-daughter the way a grandpa should! He was pushing her on the swings, spinning her on the merry go round, and helping her on the see saw. What a joy this park is in so very many ways!” –Ginny Williams, Hope Park, Frisco, TX.

“I had no idea how it this process would make me feel and the experience I had is beyond words. I was on the verge of tears most of time because I could see all my dreams coming true! I have stories upon stories of sons getting along with their dads and learning the knowledge of construction from them (this means a lot to me as I work with teens and know the hardships of parent/child relationships) this project brought them together in a positive light. Stories of how grown retired Marines crying over the beauty they saw and experienced of people coming together for the betterment of their community. People are still stopping me at the post office reliving their stories during the build about what they did, who they worked with and how it changed them forever. The most encouraging thing that has been said is “what is the next town building project, count me in!” You are not only creating playgrounds for people to commune but you are creating life changing experiences in such a positive way! Your company creates a harmony of lifelong friendships, positive interaction with all different age levels and groups and all for the good of mankind now and in our future!

It was everything I hoped for, people came, loved it, stayed on and were then moved by the experience of being involved in something so connected to their community. It showed us all that our town has a strong beating heart! We have had nothing but compliments, everyone is so happy! L&A staff was fantastic, within 20 minutes of their arrival on site they had all the eager volunteers working hard at jobs, and they ran such a great build. Everyone was impressed by their work and we all felt empowered by their encouragement on the job.” Miranda Gillespie, Rye’s Up! Community Playground, Rye, Australia
