The new playground design and development is the result of a joint effort with the Camden County Commission, Camden County Developmental Disabilities Resources, Camden County residents, and Unlimited Play.

A plan to bring a universally accessible playground to Macks Creek for all children will be the topic of an upcoming meeting.  

The unveiling of Pirate Park will be held at Old Kinderhook at 5:30 PM April 30. Pirate Park, a universal design, fully accessible playground for all children and families, is one step closer to becoming a reality. The Camden County Park Board will host the event to showcase the new playground.

The new playground design and development is the result of a joint effort with the Camden County Commission, Camden County Developmental Disabilities Resources, Camden County residents, and Unlimited Play, a Missouri nonprofit organization which specializes in planning, designing, and building universally accessible playgrounds. 

Anyone interested in learning more about the efforts to fund and construct the new public playground in Macks Creek is invited. During the event, information and designs will be shared. Unlimited Play will also be giving a presentation about the importance of providing the freedom of play for all children regardless of ability. 

Pirate Park is the county’s first project the Camden County Park Board has been involved with.
