Officials Break Ground on $2.7 Million Kiwanis-Methow Park Remodel - NewsRadio 560 KPQ - KPQ

Local officials and members of the community broke ground on an ambitious multi-million dollar renovation of Kiwanis-Methow Park in Wenatchee Saturday afternoon.

Councilman Lyle Markhart said the park’s facelift can bring

an inclusive force in the community.

“It will be a great place to gather, for kids to come and play. It’s going to include the south end more into the city.” explained Markhart, “So we can bring our Hispanic population more into the mainstream. Oh it’s going to be great. Between it and the Community Center, this is going to be a booming area!”

The project is expected to cost just under $2.7 million, with about half of that coming from the city and the other half coming from the Trust for Public Land and other donations.

“It’s a good plan. It’s gonna have problems, probably, but it’s a good plan.” Markhart said, “The whole thing is sort of centered on what you would find in Mexico in a park. You got a walkway, and you’ve got a circle for the kids to walk around and grandma and mom to sit and watch them.”

Mayor Frank Kuntz says he hopes the park’s renovations will be completed by November.
