“With the donation from Royal Credit Union Foundation, we were able to begin building phase one of Fairy Wonderland Park.  This donation will ensure that the park will be a place that goes beyond minimum accessibility for kids of all abilities, while learning through purposeful play” said Bethany Christenson, board member for Healing Play, Inc, the nonprofit created to raise funds for Fairy Wonderland Park. “This considerable contribution allows us to continue to honor our children and create joy and fun for families in Prescott and the surrounding communities.”

“The RCU Foundation has history of supporting parks like the Fairy Wonderland Park. We recognize that having spaces in a community where people can come together to learn, to recreate, and to build connections is vital to fostering relationships and creating a vibrant community for everyone,” said John Sackett, RCU Foundation President. “We are honored to support this inclusive park that will ensure that community members from Prescott and beyond will have a place to gather and play for generations to come.”

Construction for Fairy Wonderland Park is already underway. The first phase of custom build play equipment is installed. All three phases of the project are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2024.
