Kimberling City Breaks Ground On New Park
April 18, 2019
By late fall, children in Kimberling City will have a new, city-owned park to play in. The city held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, April 10, marking the start of work on the pocket park at 19 Lakeshore Drive. Sometime in August, there will be a community build day, where residents and other community members will be able to come out and help bring the park together.
Over 30 people came out on the warm and windy Wednesday, including county commissioners present and past, along with representatives of the Kimberling City park board and several area businesses. Some of the children who will directly benefit from the park also came along.
The park will feature playground equipment paid for by a KaBoom! grant, plus seating and grassy play areas.
Final engineering work is being completed, with work starting in earnest once those details are finalized.
“We will have a park here by October,” said Korina Jones, chair of the volunteer parks board.
