Let All The Children Play Accessible Park and Playground (LATCP), located at Eisenhower Park, Field 4 in East Meadow, NY. LATCP is dedicated to improving the lives and dignity of all children by developing accessible playgrounds and inclusive recreation programs allowing children with disabilities the opportunity to experience play, side-by-side, with their able-bodied peers.
David Weingarten, Vice-Chair of LATCP was introduced to the organization that spent years researching, developing and designing Israel’s first accessible playground, which opened in Ra’anana, Israel in 2005. Michael Alon, Chairman and Founder of LATCP, worked on the Ra’anana playground paired up with Weingarten to establish the organization as a 501 c 3 in 2006. Michael Alon and David Weingarten worked together to build the organization to what it is today. Collaborating with government officials, organizations, civic groups and parents they established a mission to create a similar playground in Nassau County. The amazing 2 acres park that resulted from this collaboration is now open.
