It was a packed room at Udall Park Regional Center as kids and their parents took part in Design Day. 

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.

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!

UnitedHealthcare is funding the playground $100,000 but parents still need to raise their part $8,500.
