DES MOINES, Iowa — The restoration of a Des Moines playground is underway after it was destroyed by an act of arson.

The playground at Park Avenue Elementary School was set on fire in March. Two girls told police they started the fire because they were bored.

The equipment had been installed just five months before the fire.

Work began earlier this week to replace the charred playground. It will be ready for kids at the end of the summer.
