Nobody was hurt.

A spokesperson for Windsor’s Parks, Recreation and Culture said it will take 4-5 months to tear down and rebuild the playground at a cost of close to $300,000.

“We’ll get it back to the way it was,” Mayor Paul Rennemeyer said.

The Windsor Police Department is asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident or seen suspicious activity in the area on the day of the fire to contact Detective John Grashorn at 970-674-6445 or jgrashorn@windsorgov.com.
