Kiwanis Little Ones Play Park

About two years ago, several Hibbing parents started the process to build an indoor park that would be inexpensive for young children in the area. The biggest hurdle was finding space to house the equipment. After many different locations were investigated, the library offered a portion of the downstairs auditorium. There was overwhelming support from local businesses and individual community members (maybe even you!) in fundraising for the equipment. Equipment was purchased, and was then donated to the City of Hibbing and therefore covered under their liability insurance.  The cost for park admittance is a minimal $1 per day per child.

 For the past year, the park has been visited over 3,800 times!
