OTTUMWA — More than 200 volunteers from Dr Pepper Snapple Group, city of Ottumwa, organizers from KaBOOM! and residents of the Ottumwa community will join forces on Friday to give area kids a new playground at Wildwood Park.
The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event involving Ottumwa Schools elementary students in April. Work on the project begins Friday morning at Wildwood Park with a kickoff ceremony at 8:30 a.m. Most of the playground building project is expected to be complete by the mid-afternoon, with a ribbon cutting ceremony between 2:30-3 p.m.
