Hannibal families now have two new playgrounds to choose from.
The Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department held grand openings for the two playgrounds on Thursday. Kiwanis Park along Broadway features a rock climbing wall, crawl through deck and several picnic shelters.
Willow Street Park is located right behind the Willow Street church and has all new playground equipment including a suspension bridge.
There are plans to add a basketball hoop in the future.
The playgrounds have a combined cost of more than 60-thousand dollars.
