PINELLAS PARK — Volunteers from the Armed Forces Families Foundation recently opened the Wounded Warriors Abilities Ranch, a wounded veterans-focused outdoor recreation area at Lurie Park. Construction on the new pavilion began late last year after the foundation donated $61,794. The new pavilion will be open to the public, but serves as a resource center for wounded veterans by offering activities, equipment and facilities that are fully handicap and wheelchair accessible. The park features cycling trails, a multi-purpose court, an accessible workout station with ADA-compliant fitness equipment, a dog park, children's playground and a memorial garden to honor fallen soldiers of Pinellas County.
