I live in Prairie Ridge Estates in Eudora and when I moved in 10 years ago the city said that they were going to put parks in for the kids to play. Ten years later, my kids are 6 years old, they still have no parks on the east side of Church Street. I just wondered if there were any plans to put one in?
Eudora parks and recreation director Bobby Arnold said a park east of Church Street had been planned, designed and was in the early stages of construction.
Arnold said the park, at the intersection of 14th and Chestnut streets, would include playground equipment, a shelter and a half-court basketball site.
The total cost of the project will be close to $100,000, said Arnold, who has been director for about a year.
