The Rowlett Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce the re-build of our Kids Kingdom Playground. The design was inspired by our children and will be built by the Rowlett Community!
In 1998, Rowlett citizens came together, built a legacy and named it Kids Kingdom. A legacy that drew children from across the area and gave them a space all their own to create memories that would never fade! In 2011, due to enhanced safety concerns and EPA standards, the City's beloved playground was removed.
The new Kids Kingdom will be a “Community Build” playground like the original and we are seeking volunteers from our community to assist in the rebuild. Your help in rebuilding Kids Kingdom Playground will impact generations of children in our community, encompassing many aspects of their maturation process. They will develop skills to enhance their growth physically, emotionally, mentally and socially on a playground.
Kids Kingdom playground will also give us an opportunity to show what wonderful community pride we have here in Rowlett. Through the community build process, relationships will be forged across neighborhoods, across schools, across the community and you can be a part of something truly amazing.
One of the key features of Kids Kingdom Playground is that it is accessible to all children regardless of their abilities. All children deserve an opportunity to play independently with their peers. Inclusive playgrounds allow children of all abilities to play together to foster acceptance and friendships. 10% of children today have some sort of disability including cognitive, physical, learning, visual or hearing. This playground is designed with these children in mind, offering an opportunity to develop and enhance abilities through interactive outdoor play.
