New playgrounds coming to five Lenexa parks

New playgrounds coming to five Lenexa parks
Posted on 09/13/2018

Lenexa's playground patrons will have exciting new destinations to explore in spring 2019, with five playgrounds slated for replacement as part of Lenexa's annual Playground Replacement Program. At each location, staff studied the existing playgrounds and parks to select the best mix of play elements for that particular park and its patrons.

Staff plan to begin removing the existing playgrounds and installing new equipment later this fall and through the winter.
