Be a Kid Again at Fort Kid
Iconic playground connects to past, looks to future
Fort Kid has been a Knoxville landmark since it was built in 1991. The volunteer construction effort was the biggest in our city’s history, as some 2,500 people built the 12,000-square-foot playground in five days. A two-part renovation is planned in 2014-15, because the playground is now nearly a quarter of a century old. Situated adjacent to the Knoxville Museum of Art and World’s Fair Park and bordering the Fort Sanders neighborhood, Fort Kid is a popular spot for families. Another volunteer campaign is needed to maintain and upgrade our iconic playground. Thank you Knoxville for what you did 23 years ago, and thank you for stepping up again.
