ROCKWALL, TX (Sept. 19, 2022) Hundreds of excited residents showed up to celebrate the City of Rockwall’s Parks and Recreation Department’s grand re-opening on Saturday of their newly renovated KidZone at Harry Myers Park. Rockwall Mayor Kevin Fowler welcomed the crowd, and the Director of Parks and Recreation, Travis Sales, introduced all the fun-filled new features of the playground.
Among those recognized at the event were Sylvia Sotelo Kidd of Ebby Halliday Realtors, and Bill Bricker of Rockwall Breakfast Rotary, both of whom were instrumental in installing the original playground in 2004.
The previous structures were all wood, and the project was a public / private partnership between community organizations and the City of Rockwall. The old playground served children well for nearly two decades, but it was time for an upgrade.
Some of the new features include a ninja warrior warped climbing wall, all-inclusive features for children of all ages and abilities, shade covers, zip lines, and an 8’ climbing sphere. To mark the occasion, the Parks and Rec staff served plenty of cold water and hot dogs until they ran out. Kids of all ages in the crowd even got to test out the new equipment. The KidZone playground is now officially open to the public.
