Today we celebrated a wonderful moment as we broke ground on the long awaited All-Abilities Playground at Ascarate Park!

In partnership with Moms on Board (MOB) the all-abilities playgrounds are set to be built at three El Paso County parks; Ascarate, Gallegos in Canutillo, and Risinger in Fabens.

An all-abilities playground is a space that provides inclusive play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities. They are designed to promote the healthy development of all children’s physical, social, cognitive, and sensory abilities.

The all-abilities playground funding is part of Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD) Local Parks Urban Outdoor Recreation Grant, which was awarded to County Parks and Recreation in early 2019.

The Ascarate Park has so much potential but is neglected by the County Commissioners. Their priorities are elsewhere . The lake has much vegetation and not restock frequently with fish. Picnic area are in bad shape. If you golf, thats the only part of the lake that has much emphasis creating a great course. I have seen better county parks outside the El Paso Area. Overall rating: Unsatisfactory
