The Manning Parks and Recreation Department has announced plans to improve city parks, and a recent event for the project raised more than $10,000.
The committee is working on the details of the playground equipment and the layout of the park, which will include a new large play unit to replace the current equipment and a poured-in-place surfacing to replace the fine gravel.
The Park Committee held an all-ages fundraiser for the newly designed City Park Equipment on July 14, at the City Park from 5-7 p.m. Starting with the fundraiser, over 200 participants helped raise funds and over 30 volunteers helped with the event. Six silent auction items were sold, totaling $1,025.
A vision plan is being developed for the park, which includes landscaping, hardscape updates, existing tree and shade management, lighting, security initiatives, and more. . The new playground unit and a few of the current playground pieces will be updated and work together with the same theme and colors as the Splashpad. Other items to update and add include: replacing the train with a new train; the carousel will be updated with a poured-in-place coating; and newly designed monkey bars. A new poured-in-place liner will be installed under the existing equipment and new playground unit.
Project cost: $250,000 (The cost of the new equipment unit is $150,000 and $100,000 for the cast-in-place lining). A silent auction will be held and will include the following items: wooden playhouse; large landscaping rock; decorative planter: and pool party for up to 20 people. Note: Items will be available when replaced. Bidders are responsible for pick up and delivery of items.
Members of the group, in addition to recreation director Cory Arp and city administrator Dawn Meyer, are Lauren Vanderhorst, Melissa Puck, Katie Wall, Kara Havick, Sheryl Dammann and Jean Stadtlander.
