BRIGANTINE - Back in the 1980s a group of local mothers had the idea to build a small indoor playground for their young children. They sought legal advice, attended City Council meetings to propose their idea, got proper local approvals, received countless donations - a carousel, a ball pit, books, toys - and together they formed the Playroom.
