Brookfield Immanuel Lutheran playground dedication

A new playground was dedicated Sunday, Aug. 21 at Brookfield's Immanuel Lutheran Church.

Organizers said they expected around 500 church members, families, playground sponsors and members of the community to take part in Sunday's dedication, which also included a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

This new playground is a community playground, located on Hampton Road near Lilly Road. Immanuel Lutheran Church, School & Child Care leaders said it is "not just a playground but a place to build strong families and vibrant communities."

It opens just in time for the 435 Immanuel students to enjoy it during the 2022-2023 school year.
