Playground Nears Completion At Wellington Promenade

The play structures are complete at the new playground near the Wellington Promenade.

There will soon be a new place to play right behind the Wellington Community Center.

The new playground at the Wellington Town Center Promenade is only about two weeks away from being ready to host its first playing children. Given a spot of dry weather, it could be sooner than that.

“We need three full days of dry weather to put down the poured-in-place rubber matting,” Village Engineer Jonathan Reinsvold said. “That three-day window will let us finish up the park… The fencing around it will be added later.”

Reinsvold said that the play structures in the park are complete and ready, except for the final flooring. “It has a shade structure, a slide, a climbing net and playground equipment,” he said, noting that there are also shaded benches nearby.


  1. I’m all for providing safe playgrounds for the children of our Village. But, how many do we need? “The new playground at the Wellington Town Center Promenade…” is across the parking lot from Scott’s Place Barrier-Free Playground. This playground includes a full acre of accessible playground equipment. How big is this new one? In addition, at what cost?

    If the Council has extra money around, why not give it back to the people? Instead of subsidizing the School Board or building facilities that will seldom be used.
