After two years of fundraising, the Kylie Hiner Memorial Park Committee announced their fundraising goal of $1.1 million has been surpassed to reach $1.3 million. The committee announced the news at the September 6 Canyon City Commission meeting. 

Donations for the park were coordinated through and raised by Southwest Ambucs, a non-profit service organization consisting of a diverse group of men and women who are dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities.

The groundbreaking for the playground will be held on Thursday, October 20th at 11:00 am. This is open to the public and lunch will be provided after by Southwest AMBUCS Amarillo.

In the honoring of Kylie’s life, the Kylie Hiner Memorial Playground will be a place for all members of the Canyon community. We are raising $1.2 million for this project.

Kylie Hiner was loved and embraced by the Canyon community and this playground will be a place to experience the joy Kylie brought to the lives of everyone she knew.

Kylie wanted to know things about anyone she met for the first time, she remembered those things, when she saw them again she asked about those things, and she made these new friends feel like a million bucks each time she saw them. If Kylie ever met you, you were important to her.

Kylie loved to make plans with people and looked forward to spending special time with friends and family. She made meeting people a personal and unique experience. Kylie never forgot that special handshake, unique greeting, or that funny joke that was just between you and her.

Kylie had autism but her friends and family just thought of it as “odd-tism,” she was just that funny girl.

Kylie loved everyone, and everyone loved Kylie.
