Millie's Playland was named after Millie, 4yr old daughter of Jon and Alicia Magro who are nearby residents of Lakewood. Millie's favorite animal is a sloth and her grandma even illustrated the logo :)
In early 2019, Jon was diagnosed with stage 3 throat cancer and was about to enter the fight of his life. But he knew he had to go through with treatment for Alicia and for the love of his life, Millie. After fighting and nearly dying from the disease which included radiation and chemotherapy treaments, Jon was given a clean bill of health in September of 2019. Their family remains grateful to all who supported them during this difficult time.
While full recovery will take a few more years, Jon and Alicia came out of this with a new perspective of life and love. This is what spawned the idea to create a special place for their daughter and for the community which showed so much love and support to their family. After all, there's nothing better then creating a place that can generate so many great experiences for kids.
This business was not built to make substantial profit, in fact we would be happy if we make just enough to pay the bills and our employees. This business is truly intended as an outlet for our family to give back. A portion of any profit will be donated to SPOHNC (Support for People with Oral, Head, and Neck Cancer). We sincerely hope you and your children enjoy your experience at Millie's Playland. Thank you.
