1. What city are you in?2. Are you saying that there is a fee to use the playset? Is it privately owned?3. Who owns the neighboring land?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Townsend, Delaware. There is no fee to use but we pay an HOA fee of $100 a month. I am not sure who owns the land since we have several diff builders. The playset was put up by Civic Association
It is so close to our home and facing it. With 11 acres there was no need to place it where they did. I have kids running all over my property. This is not where the playset for the park was to be placed 10 years ago in the original layout.

Here is your zoning ordinance. I am not seeing anything in there that would address this. You may have to check your HOA covenants, rules and regulations to see if there is any zoning limitation for this type of park. I will opt out of the question so another expert can try to assist you. Your deposit is still in tact.
