The other Tread Towns are located in Lakewood, Calif.; Jackson, Miss.; Savannah, Ga.; Memphis, Tenn.; and Huntersville, N.C., where ATD is based. The distributor put its investment in the two playgrounds at $100,000, with local partners contributing as well.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are nearly 7 million children nationwide who have a disability that prohibits them from enjoying the full experience of a traditional community playground, ATD said.
"Tread Town playgrounds provide safe, positive places for all children to play, learn and thrive," said Dan Brown, president of Tire Pros.
