Kid’s Kingdom was built over 20 years ago, through an effort where the community came together providing the labor, tools, and equipment needed to construct the massive playground. It is enjoyed by literally thousands of children each year, with other communities bussing in children from other areas for the day to enjoy the area. The City of Sulphur Springs parks department is tasked with the maintenance, cleaning and upkeep of the playground, which is sometimes challenging due to the abuse from those using it. This latest vandalism shows the disregard from someone of the literally thousands of labor hours that were donated by community members to make this dream a reality.
