Kiddie Park on the mend

Bartlesville Playground Kiddie Park Little FireballGood news: I mentioned that we drove by the Bartlesville Playground -- the Kiddie Park -- this last Saturday to see how it was affected by the flooding of the Caney River, the worst since 1986. KOTV is reporting that they're in the process of cleaning and repairing everything and have hopes of reopening by August 1.

The Kiddie Park holds a special place in my memory -- as a small child, I lived about two blocks away -- and now it's a special place to my children as well. I remember taking our oldest there when he was barely three, watching him riding in the boats, pulling the rope to ring the bell, and remembering what it felt like to be there when I was his size. The toddler is big enough to ride this year, and I know he'll love it too.

I love that place. I took my kids there a couple of months ago. In fact, I rode that ride in your picture with my daughter. A little bumpy for mee ol' back, but fun, nonetheless.
What a blast.

Thanks for the update. That's good news. We're good for about three trips up there a year.

We lived in B'ville when our kids were little. They loved that park. It took them a long time to clean it up after the '86 flood and there was discussion that it might not reopen. They probably got flood insurance this time. Glad it is reopening this summer. I want to take my grandson.
