Kentwood plans to rebuild burned playground

KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM) - Kentwood's mayor says that the city will rebuild the playground that burned down on Thanksgiving morning.

A suspicious fire torched the playground at 1999 Wolfboro, near Kalamazoo Avenue and 52nd Street on Thanksgiving morning.

Mayor Richard Clanton says that the structure is covered by the city's insurance and rebuilding the playground will be similar to the format the city used in 2001 in building the park in the first place.  There will be an open house at a yet to be determined time for input from the community.

Kentwood Police are still working to identify suspects responsible for the fire.  Anyone with information should call the  Kentwood Police Department at 698-6580 or Silent Observer at 774-2345.
