UPDATE: The playground remains open. The damaged areas has been blocked off.
From Mayor Steve Olson’s Facebook page:
Of the many features at Kayla’s Playground there are two that are important but not often talked about. One is the rubberized poured in place play surface. It’s specifically designed to protect the kids from falls and to provide a good surface for crutches and wheelchairs. There’s also the areas under the ramps and slides and other play structures that are designed to be a safe place to play hide-and-seek, Well, last week someone decided that they’d hide while they destroyed part of the safety floor. Wouldn’t it be a shame to have to close up such a fun area because someone likes to destroy things. We’re getting quotes on getting the floor fixed but it’s not going to be cheap.
We respectfully ask Mayor Olson to comment with any update(s).
Otherwise, I’m sure you can check out his Facebook page.
