Sometimes tragedy brings out the best in people and communities. This was the case in West, TX, where six year old Parker Pustejovsky helped rally a community to rebuild a park close to his heart. After losing his father and other First Responders in a 2013 fertilizer plant explosion, Parker wanted to rebuild the park his dad used to take him to. That’s when the Parker’s Park Project started, and since then, organizers have raised money and people from around the country have rallied to help. Parker’s Park thematically recreates a fire station and truck with everything from Custom Panels to First Responder Rock ‘N’ Rides and a large fire hat that tops off the space. The details made the difference in creating this space that kids ages 2-12 can play in while gaining important skills such as cooperative play, communication and social play.
