Parks and Recreation Kids Kingdom Umbrella Shades (Elmore): The City of Millbrook has spent the last 24 plus months renovating the Kids Kingdom Park. This park is the children’s park attached to Millbrook’s main Village Green Park.

The children will be able to play with the play equipment being overheated rendering it non-useable.
