New Rescue Ranch Inclusive Playground (Earnhardt Family Playground)
Rescue Ranch held a community ribbon-cutting on Saturday, June 3, 2017 for the “Earnhardt Family Playground.” Rescue Ranch is a Non-Profit Animal Welfare Organization founded by Krissie and Ryan Newman. This playground was made possible by a generous donation from the Dale Jr. Foundation.
The new “10,0000 Square Foot” Inclusive Playground at Rescue Ranch has an Animal Theme with a custom Barn and poured in place surfacing with an array of animal footprints which fits perfectly into the Rescue Ranch landscape. This playground will play a part in Rescue Ranch’s educational programs to promote respect for animals and responsible pet ownership, as well as agricultural, environmental and wildlife conservation by providing an additional place for all to play including Critter Campers, school groups and more.
