Fall mums, longer park hours thanks to KC voters

 Voters approved a new tax for parks in August – and the parks department is already starting improvements.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to build upon the strong reputation of the Parks department. These resources will make a big difference,” Park Board President Jean Paul Chaurand said at a press conference today.

Chaurand announced today that several improvements will begin immediately, including:

  • The opening of several community centers seven days a week.
  • Twelve new annual flower beds, one in each council district, are currently being planted with fall mums.
  • Playground inspections will increase from one per month to one per week.
  • Picnic shelter renovations including painting and electrical work have begun.
  • The community centers are also offering expanded fall programs.

All of the city’s community centers, including the Westport Roanoke Community Center at 3601 Roanoke Road, will be hosting open houses on Saturday, October 6 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
