SOUTH HAVEN — Plans that have been in the works since 2018 to rebuild a popular playground structure in South Haven just got a little more complicated – and expensive.

City officials have been poised for the past several years to build a new playground at Kids Corner to replace the aging, wooden structure built in 1988. Officials obtained a $275,000 grant from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in 2018 and pledged to match it for a total cost of $550,000.
