n 2017, the city of Mustang’s Wild Horse Park unveiled a playground that allows those with disabilities to play alongside their friends without disabilities. The play area includes zip lines, tandem swings, and slides that don’t require climbing. The idea to create Brittany’s Play Adventure came from Lynly Girder, whose sister-in-law; Brittany Girder, was born with Pallister-Killian mosaic syndrome (PKS), a rare genetic disorder that has Brittany functioning at a three-four-year-old level.
There are well over 1,000 children in the Mustang Public School District with special needs that benefit from having Brittany’s Play Adventure to explore on. The Mustang High School helped raise funds for the playground as a way to show their support and to promote the inclusion of all regardless of their level of ability. During the spring, summer, and early fall you will find a melting pot of children, having fun and learning through their environment.
