Kiddie Korral Spruce Up with Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois

Thanks to an increased focus on obtaining grant funds for park projects and programming, Blue Island Park District was selected for a playground improvement award to freshen up Kiddie Korral during October 2017. The park was completely renovated several years ago during a previous KaBOOM build project.


While the weather didn’t cooperate for the originally planned day of community volunteerism, the work was accomplished throughout the month by park staffers, including re-mulching the play area, cleaning up playground equipment and touching up paint, weeding, rebuilding walking paths, installing permanent athletic equipment storage containers, and reconditioning the soccer play area with new grass, nets, and team benches.
