Almost 100 parents and kids came out to celebrate a new playground in New Bedford Saturday.

The aviation-themed play space opened up at the New Bedford Regional Airport, hoping to introduce kids to the world of aviation and give them a new space to play.

After 5 years of planning, organizers say the first weekend was a success.

The playground is open to the public.
