In June 2012, the Sunshine Playground, at Bremenfest Park was open for play.  The Sunshine Playground is a 100% ADA certified playground, the only one located in Auglaize County and the surrounding region, within a 70 mile radius. The Sunshine Playground features a rubber surface, ramps, wide walkways and special swings.  The handicapped accessible playground is located adjacent to the standard playground equipment. 

This convenient setup allows for a family to meet the needs of their entire family unit, allowing the children the opportunity to play at their physical capability levels, as well as together.   

The vision and reality of the Sunshine Park was made possible through the efforts of the New Bremen/New Knoxville Rotary Club.
