During the month of October please Run/Walk/Cycle and get out to enjoy the Fall weather. Landon was limited in mobility to what he could do in a wheelchair. Honor Landon's memory by doing the very things he was not able to.
Landon's Legacy Foundation (LLF) was founded in order to remember and honor Landon Smith who was born with Spina Bifida. Landon dreamed of playing baseball however, his disease confined him to a wheelchair, Landon lost his fight for life on June 3, 2013, just days before his 18th birthday.
In order to keep Landon’s memory alive, his family established Landon's Legacy Foundation with the intention of having Landon's dream of playing baseball realized by other children and adults with similar challenges in life.
Currently, Landon’s Legacy is fundraising for Phase 2, Landon's Inclusive Playground, and comes with a price tag of $1,300,000. The Playground will have sidewalks leading to the play area and will have a solid surface under the playground equipment. Landon's Inclusive Playground can be utilized by able-bodied and those with special needs or limitations of some kind. It is the goal of the project that siblings and friends will be able to play alongside each other regardless of special conditions or limitations. The park will be completely fenced for safety and this will put families more at ease when they are at Landon's Park with their child, in the event a child has wandered off there is one way in and out.
Landon's Legacy Foundation has partnered with Billings Parks and Recreation to create our community's first park that is accessible to individuals of all abilities. The City of Billings Parks and Recreation Department has generously donated five acres of land for the project at the Poly Vista Baseball Complex, 38th Street West, and Poly Drive. Landon's Legacy is taking on the role of fundraising for this important and unique project. Landon's Park is a Three Phase project. Phase 1 is Landon's Miracle Field, completed in August of 2022. Phase 1 also provided the park concessions stand and restroom facility that has an adult-sized lift for the convenience and comfort of individuals who typically have to lay down to complete their particular restroom process, i.e. diapering or other types of hygiene.
Phase 3, is Landon's Splash Pad. Fundraising will begin after funds have been secured for the playground. Individuals with mobility issues or who take specific medications often have a difficult time cooling their bodies. The Splash Pad will ensure that families can spend the day at the park and not need to leave because of these challenges.
