WARWICK, R.I. (WPRI) - A popular nonprofit playground in Warwick will sit idle for two days per week due to tough economic times.
The imPossible Dream Playground will now be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, shortening its operation from seven to five days per week.
The playground, built for special needs children, will now be open only from Wednesday through Sunday.
"The move will save the agency thousands of dollars in utility and other costs...it's not what I want to do, but right now things are tough," Diane Penza, Executive Director of The imPossible Dream, told The Providence Journal.
Penza's father, John D. Florio, Sr. started the nonprofit organization in 1982, which grants wishes to chronically ill children.
