History of Kinderpark

Kinderpark, formally known as "Optimist Park," was developed in 1997 with the support of the local Optimist Club. The Optimist Club supported the purchase of playground equipment and development of the site, which was an abandoned city well site.

In 2016 the park received a complete makeover and upgrades, bringing it up to ADA compliance. Along with the makeover came the new name of Kinderpark - a nod to the town's German heritage.
