Jackson Park Inclusive Playground
Summary: This project will construct a new ADA accessible, perimeter contained, inclusive “tot lot” (a playground for young children) at Jackson Park.
Cost: About $110,000
Funding: In 2017, City staff applied for funding through the Land and Water Conservation (L&WC) Grant Funds administered by the Kansas Dept. of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism. Unfortunately, that grant application was unsuccessful and the prospects for future funding through that program do not appear promising.
In 2018, the City plans to make another run at this project by applying for a grant through the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and by increasing the local contribution to the project budget.
