·1 min read

The Highland Park Super Playground has reopened after the completion of renovations that took years to plan.

The Department of Public Works hosted a celebration in honor of the return of the park, which has been closed since February.

“From the moment we took the fence down yesterday, there’s been kids here playing and enjoying it,” said Andrea Ketzel, a representative of the Department of Public Works.

Ketzel said they wanted to keep the spirit of the historic playground alive by keeping certain original elements, like wooden equipment.
