Safety City: Mini Kewpee Burger

It's the "Optimist Club" Safety City -- which I guess is a good name for it!

Mini Kewpee Burgers, Other Lima Landmarks

"Safety City" has an adorable miniature Kewpee Burgers, a tiny McDonalds and DQ, a hospital that stands maybe 10 feet high, and even an itty-bitty refinery. Most of the buildings face the large, accessible parking lot. A great photo-op for fans of the shrinking burger chain. There is also some vintage McDonaldland play equipment on the far end. Fenced-in with a locked gate when there are no events, but the buildings are still easily visible.
