Help Build the Perfect Play Area

Children in the Wellswood neighborhood have dreamed of their perfect play area. Thanks to the City of Tampa Parks and Recreation Department and partners KaBOOM!, Mutual of Omaha Foundation and the Friends of Tampa Recreation, Inc., the neighborhood kids will have a new playground -- one that they designed.

To complete the project, the City is looking for volunteers to help build the play area at Wellswood Park, located at 4918 N. Mendenhall Dr. The building project is scheduled for Thursday, October 8 beginning at 8 a.m.

Volunteering to help build a playground for these children is a way for the public to help create a better play area in the community.

If you’d like to volunteer to help kids, please register online at or call Wellswood Park at 813-348-2060.
