It's not a question that some of the play equipment in Riverside Park could use a little sprucing up. And that's why one Alderman entered the city into a pretty cool contest.
"I think a new play system would be a big plus because it's a place for children, its green it's out in the open." Says one local.
Write your way to a new playground set...It's a competition put on by playworld systems and Moline is one of the three finalists nationwide. Alderman Lori Turner says she's still having trouble believing it.
"I was so excited it was incredible because she had to leave me a message so played the message 4-5 times."
A few years back Lori says the Riverside Park playground equipment was just too old so they got rid of most of it, not leaving much for the kiddos to use.
But Brock Luna says he still loves the park.
"I think it's superfun because I just really like that thing because it's super easy."
But there's always room for improvement.
"Maybe a new basketball court because I always play basketball."
And aside from getting the kids outdoors, Lori hopes that the new early childhood gear will bring the community together.
"For families and friends to come out and have a good time and make memories."
So Brock has just one request for you.
