NEW YMCA Playground

Through a wonderful partnership with United Health Care, the Ottumwa Family YMCA is building a brand new playground! We are very excited to provide a new and fun place for local youth to play, stay active and connect with friends! Through a project committee with a wide cross section of backgrounds the YMCA has created a fully inclusive playground with many fun opportunities! United Health Care has been so wonderful to take on the full cost of the playground at over $150,000! The project is well underway and will be a wonderful addition to the south side Ottumwa business district! We have planned a community build date of Nov. 3rd and 4th. We are looking for any and all volunteers that would like to help build this playground! United Health Care employees will be joining this build and also investing some “sweat equity” in this project! The new playground location will be more than double the space of our current playground and provide a much safer environment for all children to play in! Below are several pictures that illustrate the playground and the progress that we have made so far! For more information on this playground or to volunteer for our community build, contact Garrett, Membership & Marketing Director at 641-684-6571 ext.28.
