Historic rocket slide makes its return to Keokuk


Some Keokuk residents are feeling a little nostalgic tonight after a city favorite has returned to one park.

The rocket slide now sits in Triangle Park in Keokuk after fundraising efforts to get the historic slide back in the city.

The 40 year-old slide was taken out of Kilbourne Park in 2008 because of its age and safety issues.

It was then purchased by an out of state buyer and renovated on an episode of American Restoration.
