The ETCDC and volunteer DeDe Christopher assisted with initial design concepts for the Ashley Nicole Dream Playground, which was the recipient of the 2005 TN Recreation and Parks Association’s Best Facility Award for being a 100% totally accessible playground and the first of its kind in Knoxville.
