Kimberley Development is proud to have been a small part of making the dream of the Ankeny Miracle League & Playground a reality. This all-inclusive playground and ball field caters to the more than 3,500 children with special needs between the ages of 5 and 15 who live in the area and more than 800 who attend Ankeny Community Schools. This initiative developed from the lack of recreational facilities that exist to meet the needs of these children. The Miracle Field & All-Inclusive Playground facility was specifically designed for children with disabilities. It is located in Hawkeye Park in Ankeny and features a custom field made of cushioned, rubberized turf that is flat and free from obstacles, a network of “Buddies” to teach, assist, and protect players during play, and a 100% accessible playground on a rubberized surface. $1.7 million dollars was raised in a community effort to bring the park to fruition.
