A new playground is coming to Winfield, KS after being the target of arson 2 times.

The playground at Island Park was destroyed in an arson fire last month.

It was the second time since 2008 that arsonists ruined the playground.

Winfield City Manager Warren Porter says that the city received an insurance check of $624,000 last week.

However, the insurance company will not give the city “replacement coverage” again, only liability.

Porter says that could change the design of the park.

Police have made no arrests in the case.
