Another playground dedicated in memory of Kenadi Jean Weis

SPEARFISH, S.D. — The Kenadi Jean Weis Foundation dedicated another playground in her memory at Jorgensen Park on Saturday afternoon.

The playground is wheelchair accessible with all-inclusive swing seats. The ground surrounding the equipment is also padded which makes it a safe space to crawl.

 “Why wouldn’t all the playgrounds be all-inclusive and have the ability to accommodate kids of all abilities,” said Kelly Weis-Schultz, the President of the foundation.

There are several playgrounds in Spearfish that are all-inclusive and dedicated to Kenadi’s legacy.
