MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Work is beginning on Savannah's Playground at Grand Park. The playground is a unique public play space where children, regardless of their physical abilities, can learn, exercise, explore and grow. The first phase will cost $1.4 million.

The City of Myrtle Beach said , Savannah’s Playground will be open year-round. The playground is named for 19-year-old Savannah Thompson, who plays soccer and baseball with the Grand Strand Miracle Leagues. Construction of the full 4-acre park will be done in three phases.

Savannah’s Playground has received $750,000 in grants and pledges, but additional monies are needed to fully fund construction, according to the City of Myrtle Beach. 

The playground site is adjacent to Crabtree Memorial Gymnasium, with The Market Common in the background.

Savannah's Playground is referred to as an "enabling park" and will include a number of components such as: music park, swings, and zipline that will allow children with disabilities to take part.
