QUINCY (WGEM) - After a couple weeks of work, the playground at Madison Park in Quincy is back open, just in time for warm weather this week.

Crews with the Park District had closed the park for about two weeks.

The closure was for park rehabilitation projects, including a new sidewalk path around the playground equipment, new wooden chips to replace old, decomposing chips, and tearing down the old shelter.

While the playground is open through the winter, the work at the park is not finished yet.

Park District officials say they plan on building a new shelter in early spring to replace the old one.

When that happens, there may be another brief closure of the park.
