A new 'World of Wonders' to come for children in East Texas

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

It will be a new place for kids to learn and have fun in Longview.

Organizers of this new center for children unveiled plans to open the facility called "World of Wonder" on Tyler Street in downtown Longview.

The 11,000 square ft. facility will stand on what was originally a city park, and later one of the first fire stations in Longview.

Organizers say the history of the place will add to what the facility will offer kids.

"90 years ago families gathered here for recreation and now 90 years later we're going to have a place for families and children again. it is going to be very interactive. the children will touch and feel and create and explore everything that they learn about, very hands on," said World of Wonder's Rhonda Bullard.

Organizers expect the first phase of the $1.9 million center to be completed and open by March of next year.
