Dream Playground is Back

The Dream Playground will re-open today, after nearly eight months of sitting vacant and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on repairs. On Wednesday, the Kenosha City Council voted unanimously to approve payment to Bluemel’s Maintenance Service Inc. for replacement of the playground’s faulty flooring.  The exact time of the opening has not yet been determined, partly because fences need to be taken down. City Administrator Frank Pacetti said he expects it to re-open sometime this afternoon. Located within Petzke Park, playground was shut down in March after the rubberized flooring failed the majority of tests performed by an outside safety consultant hired by the city.
