Bring Swings Back to McGovney Park
July of 2016, Mokena Park District removed the play ground equipment at McGovney Park, located at 19345 S. Schoolhouse Road, Mokena. The previous playground equipment not only had equipment and slides for all ages, there were also swing sets for children and babies of all ages. The new equipment is only geared for kids ages 5-12 and there are no swing sets. For many families, McGovney Park is the only park in walking distance to their homes and the only place their children have an opportunity to use a swing set. The surrounding neighborhoods are full of young families, many whom bring their babies to experience the joy of their very first time to the playground swing set.
Please support this petition and let us show Mokena Park District that we want swing sets for all ages, including babies, brought back to our park.
