A grand reopening ceremony is scheduled for the Kids With Dreams Playground April 3, 2015 at 11:00 am in Lakeside Park.  

The facility now features one of the first all-inclusive playspaces in the community.

McPherson Director of Public Lands and Facilities Wayne Burns told Mid Kansas Online of the new features on the playground.

--New fall zone safe material

--New swingset

--New sidewalk going to the swingset.

--New handicapped accessible parking for the area

--Repairs to existing equipment

Also, as part of the new swingset, there is a new handicapped accessible swing with a harness that is wider and deeper than a typical swing, so special needs kids can use it.
