Children's Park Project Update


Completion of the Children's Park (Playground) project of Millennium Park - Phase II, located on Bord Du Lac Drive, will be delayed until after Thanksgiving due to construction delays.  Those delays are due to several factors, including: modification of plans for the Park to accommodate the Department of Health and Hospitals requirements with regard to splash parks; a modification in construction methods; and scheduling conflicts with public events.  Weather has also caused additional delays.  


Upon completion, major amenities of the Children's Park for the public's enjoyment will include: a major shade structure at the entrance; an entry gateway; a security fence surrounding the entire site; brick paver areas, a grassy lawn area with benches and shade structure; fossil dig shade pit with shade structure; outdoor seating; new pavilion structure with restrooms and concessions area; a splash park; and paver and concrete paths.
