The Des Moines City Council accepted a $500,000 grant from children’s non-profit, Variety to build a new playground at a southside park.

The playground to be built at Ewing Park will be named the Ashley Okland Star Playground.

Realtor, Ashley Okland was murdered in 2011. She served on Variety’s board.

The only cost to the city is for demolition of the current playground.
