What you see above, is the lot in downtown Evansville. This lot will be the future home of Kids Kingdom 2. Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and Police Chief Billy Bolin spoke about the upcoming playground and how it came about. They even announced the park's new name- Mickey's Kingdom.

This, of course, named after the inspiration behind 911 Gives Hope, Mickey Phernetton. Chief Bolin also mentioned that Mickey's Kingdom will be an all inclusive playground for children of any ability. Construction will begin later this year.
