Florissant, MO – Unions, union members, kids, families and community supporters were on hand March 26 for the dedication of Angie’s Inclusive Playground at Manion Park.

The all-inclusive playground at 170 Manion Park Dr., in Florissant is designed for children of all abilities to play with friends and family.

The city of Florissant broke ground on the facility last April, with Labor pledging its support to get the project completed.

North County Labor Club President Fred Searcy, director of Minority Recruitment for Plumbers and Pipefitters 562, said Labor Club members and the Labor community came together to build an all-inclusive playground in the city of Ferguson recently and were able to complete the installation in one day.

Several unions and union members donated time and money to help get the playground completed, including the North County Labor Club, Plumbers & Pipefitters Local 562, and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 1.

“We never have any trouble getting skilled union tradesmen and women to volunteer for worthwhile causes,” Searcy said.
