Dad builds massive $35 million theme park so kids with special needs like daughter can feel included

Nothing could ever compare to a parent’s love. They would do anything and everything to provide for our basic needs and even more.

For parents who have children with special needs, giving them the best life that they deserve comes with many challenges.

No matter how you provide them with their needs, the world could be harsh on them, and that’s beyond your control.

Here’s a story of how Gordon Hartman went to all lengths to make sure his daughter, Morgan, would enjoy life the best way possible.Gordon’s love for Morgan.Morgan was twelve years old when Gordon realized that the world could be too harsh for children like her.

She is on the autism spectrum with cognitive delay, but she is the sweetest and most friendly child to those who know how to interact with her.

They were on a family vacation when he saw Morgan having difficulty making friends in the pool. All the other kids in the people didn’t know how to act around her. This broke Gordon’s heart and sparked a calling in him.

Gordon looked for other public parks and recreational spaces that would cater to children with special needs. He soon found out that there’s no such place, even from the international perspective. His frustration was the fire he needed.

He sold his homebuilding business to have enough funds to start what he dreamed for Morgan. He consulted with engineers, architects, designers, and potential investors to create something monumental: Morgan’s Wonderland. Welcome to Morgan’s Wonderland

Gordon and his team came up with Morgan’s Wonderland, an all-accessible theme park where people can play and have fun together. Situated in San Antonio, Texas, the park is open to everything with or without disabilities.

Children and adults with special needs can enjoy all the fun rides and games for free. All rides are also wheelchair-accessible, so even those with limited mobility can enjoy them.

Gordon’s dream was to create a safe space for everything to interact and enjoy each other’s company without any barriers. He made that dream come true not only for Morgan but for thousands of kids who might find this place a breath of fresh air. Morgan’s Inspiration Island

Morgan’s Wonderland was a huge success, and because of that, other investors and nonprofit organizations thought it deserved an expansion to cater to more families. That’s when they built Morgan’s Inspiration Island, a fully-accessible water park.

Just like Morgan’s Wonderland, the rides are wheelchair-friendly. There’s also a place for warm water baths to help those with muscular conditions.

Another inspiring thing about both recreational parks is that one-third of their staff are those with special needs.

At a loss but winning

Gordon said that the theme parks are funded only through donations. He said that they operate at a million-dollar loss per year and are hoping that more donations would come in so they can serve the public better.

But despite that, we know they are winning in life.
