Kids enjoy new playground at Wildwood Park

The new playground in Wildwood Park is enjoyed by kids Monday afternoon.

The new playground in Wildwood Park is ready for play.

The new park was dedicated and officially opened Monday morning. By Monday afternoon, the new equipment was already broken in by the kids of the summer rec program, who told KTVO they love everything about the playground, from the monkey bars to the treasure hunt.

"I really like this playground, I do not know who designed it, but it's really cool!" said Zachary.

"I like everything about this playground!" said Grace.

Over 300 volunteers came out last week to help build the playground. It was designed based off of ideas given to the non-profit organization KaBOOM by kids right here in Ottumwa.

So many of the campers wanted to tell KTVO what they liked about the playground, we collected all the interviews on our YouTube channel. You can see what all the kids told us by clicking here.
