Sacha's Park

Map icon34 de la Seigneurie, L'Orignal
Sacha's Park is a place where children of all abilities can play together. This park offers  accessible playground equipment, safe and spongy surfacing adapted to mobility, ramping and transfer systems, adaptive swings, splash pad, sensory and interactive stations, and much more.

The park was built in memory of Sacha Chenier, an 11 year old boy who lived in L'Orignal, Ontario. He was severely affected by cerebral palsy and his birth injury also left him blind, epileptic, and with severe cognitive delays. During his lifetime, Sacha was unable to play in most parks as they were not wheelchair accessible. He sadly passed away suddenly on June 9th 2014 due to epilepsy related complications. Sacha's family have pledged $75,000 towards the purchase of property for the park and the balance of funding for equipment and landscaping was obtained through community fund-raising efforts and grants.
