The park will be offering more than one million educational toys at its parks in the coming months, including some of the most popular toys for children.
“There are so many things that we’re going to have to be thinking about with these toys,” said Paul Janssen, president of the park district.
“I think there’s just no place for toys like that in our park.”
Janssen says there will be plenty of space for them at the playgrounds and other areas of the parks, but they won’t be the only ones in the parks.
“We’re also going to be bringing some of these toys in, so we can bring our children with us and they can be in these new spaces,” he said.
“So we’re just getting started and we’ll keep doing that throughout the year.”
The parks are also planning to expand their food trucks, with new locations planned at several of the area parks.
A park employee said the new food trucks will be open in the summertime, when people tend to be more active.
The park district says it has also been working on the development of new playgrounds.
“The new playground areas are going to include lots of play areas and a new playground building,” said Jansson.
“Our parks have been so popular with kids, so that’s going to allow us to offer these new playground locations.”
