COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

As the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to dominate the news, we here at Whirlix Design are actively monitoring the situation to ensure the health and safety of our employees and limit disruption to our clients.

Whirlix Design is open and operating with no immediate concerns. We have received reassurances from our manufacturer, Landscape Structures,  that they are not experiencing or expect to be impacted by COVID-19 since most of their materials are sourced domestically. With plenty of resources and materials on hand, they expect to be able to fulfill orders throughout 2020.

In order to protect our employees and clients while continuing to provide our excellent customer service, we can arrange to meet via video conferencing, conference calls and email rather than in person – if so desired. We remain committed to doing everything we can to serve you and meet your needs during this challenging time.

Our employees are adhering to rigorous practice of the fundamentals outlined by the CDC and, if need be, can operate at 100% efficiency remotely from home.

With that being said, we’re monitoring the situation closely and will continue to keep you informed of any changes. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

The Rotary Club of Carrollton-Farmers Branch embarked on a Signature Project back in 2012/2013 when, then President Ben Cunningham, challenged us to come up with a significant multi year project.  After almost a year and realizing our club is all about the support of kids in our community, we decided to raise money and purchase All Accessible Playground Equipment for the two cities we serve.
Farmers Branch was ready, so we embarked on creating Rotary Park in Farmers Brach. That park was dedicated back in May of 2016 after raising over $150,000 from our members, companies and the community.
 
We began the same process in late 2018 to raise in excess of $150,000 to purchase All Accessible Playground Equipment for Rosemeade Rotary Park in Carrollton. This was in partnership with the City of Carrollton who also spent considerable funds for the new surface and infrastructure.  This park just opened to the public last Friday, August 9th.  It is ramped accessable so that wheelchair bound kids of all ages can play along side their parents and siblings.  One of the newest features is a We-Go-Round.  This is the old fashion marry go around but is wheelchair accessible.

Morgan’s Wonderland – San Antonio, TX

We were so thrilled to be a part of this project. This ultra-accessible amusement park allows kids of all ages and abilities to come together in play.

This ultra-accessible amusement park in San Antonio, Texas was inspired by Morgan Hartman. Morgan’s parents, Gordon and Maggie saw their daughter’s ability to smile through physical and cognitive challenges. And that’s what gave them idea to build this one-of-a-kind theme park called Morgan’s Wonderland.

While originally it was just a small project, the park quickly grew into a magical place where children of all differing abilities can come together and have fun in an entirely welcoming and inclusive environment.
