Highland Village City Council authorized the negotiation and execution of a contract June 25 with Play by Design for the rebuild of Kids Kastle at Unity Park, located at 2210 Briarhill Blvd., Highland Village.

Kids Kastle was originally designed and built in 1994 and is now in need of replacement, according to a city press release. Funding for the project was approved by voters in the November 2017 bond election.

The city is set to solicit community engagement and host a design-day kickoff meeting for the rebuild this fall.
