Kids’ Castle at Deerpath Park in Vernon Hills is a Little Lake County favorite where kids can duel like knights and princesses rule from their lofty towers.  Maureen tells you all about it in her Playground Profile of Deerpath Park.  What makes this tour stop even more special, is it’s your chance to bid farewell to this beloved playground – Kids’ Castle will be torn down in late October and receive a complete facelift in Spring 2016.  Help us bid a fond farewell to Kids’ Castle and slay a dragon one last time!

Our friends from the Vernon Hills Park District Summer Camp program will be there to assist your child with fun activities and cool craft projects.
