Kids Kingdom reopens Friday November 10th after arson reconstruction
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- After arson took place at a beloved local park, the South Bend Venues Parks & Arts crew took action to get the park up and running as soon as possible.
With great team effort and a positive attitude despite the negative cause, the park will be back open by Friday the 10th of November.
Kids Kingdom in Potawatomi Park was developed in 1991 by a group of volunteers who wanted to create something special for the neighborhood children.
The fire was noticed by a neighbor around 6:30 p.m. on November 1st and was extinguished shortly thereafter.
Executive Director of South Bend Venues Parks & Arts said that 10% of the structure was damaged but was very much salvageable, which crew members proved within a week.
