David Henry of the Bainbridge Island Metropolitan Park & Recreation District works the controls of a boom truck as park employees work to dismantle the Kids Up Playground at Battle Point Park.

The three towers to the play castle were taken off Wednesday, and work will continue Thursday and Friday to remove other parts of the structure.

The wood along bottom of the playground castle, built in 2001, was discovered to be highly rotted.

Some pieces of the existing structure will be reused, and the park district plans to renovate and renew the playground with the help of volunteers.
