The City of Galesburg and School District #205 worked together to build a new playground on the grounds of Lombard Middle School. The playground was completed on Saturday, September 14, 2019.
 
The new playground, designed for children ages 5 to 12, features pour-in-play surfacing under the main playground structure, a wheelchair and expression swing along with traditional swings, several inclusive play elements, and the first challenge course in western Illinois. The challenge course takes elements from 'American Ninja Warrior' along with elements from the National Football League (NFL) Scouting Combine.
 
Through a joint agreement between the City and School District, students of District #205 will have sole access to the playground when school is in session. The Galesburg community will have access to use the playground when school is not in session. The City of Galesburg and Galesburg School District partner on many recreational opportunities and look forward to partnering on more opportunities in the future.
