Handicap accessible playground equipment installed at Thompson RV Park thanks to Barbourville Junior Woman’s Study Club who funded the project. The first to utilize the equipment was nine year old Brayden Parsons.


“I’m glad I can finally bring both of my boys to the park, and they both can utilize the equipment,” said Valerie Parsons, Brayden’s mother. “I’m excited not just for my son, but for others with disabilities as well, because they wouldn’t otherwise get to play on the equipment.”
