DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) - The playground at Scovill Zoo in Decatur is scheduled to be resurfaced.

On Monday, Aug. 26, the Decatur Park District will begin resurfacing the playground next to the zoo.

The current surface will be replaced with a new rubber poured-in-place surface that is a safe and accessible for children to run, play and land on.

The playground will be closed to the general public while the resurfacing project is underway.

It is expected to be completed by mid-September.
