City of Tucson's Parks and Recreation Department won a grant from KaBOOM! a non-profit focused on giving kids a fun and safe place to play.
RELATED: Udall Park to get new playground in 2018
The old playground wasn't a safe place for children. Parents expressed concerns about exposed metal and missing playground parts. The only place kids could play was the swings and the slide.
Now, the kids have bigs dreams - they want slides, swings, monkey bars and a zipline!
