MAK Town Safety Village

The Life Enrichment Center is proud to offer the MAK Town Safety Village to children in our community. Built with a grant from the Mark A. Kreusch Memorial Fund and other supporters, MAK Town Safety Village sits adjacent to the Life Enrichment Center’s Bike Shoppe. With buildings, streets and road signs just the right size for peddle cars, the child- centered MAK Town Safety Village is home to a fun and practical educational program. Young children learn bike, pedestrian, fire, and water safety skills in a creative and dynamic setting. Children learn the type of personal skills that will keep them safe a life-time! The buildings for the MAK Town Safety Village are in place and the City of Dayton has donated signs, signals, a fire hydrant, crossing signals and parking meters. This village will allow children 3rd grade and under to start early in the development of their road safety skills while having fun at the same time.
