“Jackson County is committed to improving the quality of life of the community, including the urban core,” said Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. “This project will help revitalize the neighborhoods, give children a safe place to play and bring families together, which brings me great joy and excitement.”
Improvements at all the parks include new playground structures, landscaping, sidewalks, fencing, picnic tables and pads. A new basketball court and goals will add to the fun at the park at 24th and Woodland. The community is invited to attend any or all of these events.
