BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

Bay City is making a site change for the new Imagination Station.

City officials announced that the new site will be in Bigelow Park.

The original spot in Veterans Memorial Park had soil contamination that would have been expensive to remove.

The new site has already been approved by the Bay City commissioners, the deal will cost the city just over $28,000.

"It's going to be a brand new concept," said city manager, Rick Finn. "There's a lot of different ideas out there. We're probably going to be looking at something like metal as opposed to wood, which will last a lot longer, a lot less maintenance."

The new play area will replace the old Imagination Station which was demolished due to safety concerns.
