McKinley Park Playground, July 2012


It was a place parents took their kids to play, but in July the popular McKinley Park playground was burned to a crisp. Now, children are being asked to weigh in on ideas for how to re-build it.

“I want it to be the same because I really love it,” said Ava, a first grader.

Ava and other kids were given the chance to offer their ideas to playground planners before the preliminary design is displayed Thursday night at the Clunie Community Center.

Drawings from elementary school kids at Caleb Greenwood Elementary school will be taken into consideration for the new design. So far these kids have their sights set on something big.

“I would like to see a tiger that’s fake, you know like the skeleton of a dinosaur. I would like to see something like that,” another child told FOX40.

The new playground is scheduled to be built in June.

Meanwhile, investigators with Sacramento City Fire say the official cause of the fire is still undetermined. It is possible the fire was not arson, and they told FOX40 they are currently not looking for suspects.
