Construction of the Playground in LeFleur’s Bluff State Park is nearing completion. All that remains to be done is for the turf to be installed, all the safety fences erected, and a signage to be placed in the sidewalk near the entrance that’s compliant to the ADA.

Meanwhile, construction continues on the outdoor classroom, pavilion, and the museum trail.

The playground will include 80 play activities, 73 of which will be inclusive for children with accessibility needs, and play areas based on the age of children.

A shading system will make play more comfortable for kids during Mississippi’s hot summers.

Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi led in building the wood-structure playground that stood for years at LeFleur’s Bluff State Park. The LeFleur’s Bluff State Park project aligns with the foundation’s strategic focus of providing sustainable health and well-being opportunities for Mississippians. The project at LeFleur’s Bluff State Park is the largest outdoor activity project the foundation has funded to date.
