View Full Version : Kids Play Park

My daughter pointed out that the Kids Play Park on NW 5th Street had been taken out and sure enough it was completely gone when I drove by this morning.

My guess is that they eliminated it due to the increased drug deals and other criminal activity. The equipment provided enough hidden areas that just about anything could've happened there and no one would see. I haven't been on the grounds in quite awhile, but I didn't think it was in disrepair.

Anyone know any details about the park and what the city plans on doing with that location?

a couple years ago when they passed the parks plan, there was a section on that plan that showed that the whole park on 5th street is getting a makeover with walking trail new playground etc. I remember when they built that playground back when I was in high school around 1999 or 2000 I believe. That area was always a bit bad ( compared to other parts in moore but not as bad as 27th street between janeway and santa fe area) and still is not that great but hopefully with the rebuild of the whole park it might bring some positive things back to that area
