$2.7 million renovation project breaks ground at Wenatchee's Kiwanis-Methow Park - iFIBER One News

WENATCHEE – A special groundbreaking ceremony was held at Kiwanis-Methow Park in Wenatchee on Saturday afternoon.

The event featured several officials from various branches of local government, as

well as a number of community members who teamed up to turn the first patch of earth as part of a $2.7 million-renovation project at the park.

The 1.26-acre property at 420 Methow St. was acquired by the city in 1933 and has seen a multitude of additions to its list of amenities in the 86 years since its purchase, including a basketball court, picnic shelter, and a wading pool.

The list of planned modernizations to Kiwanis-Methow includes the building of additional restrooms, a kiosk, skate features, and multi-use athletic areas, as well as enhanced accessibility and landscaping. The existing picnic shelter there is scheduled to be repurposed for use at Wenatchee’s Hale Park.

The effort to improve the public facility is being spearheaded by the Trust for Public Land with funding coming from grants at the County, State, and Federal level, along with City resources and private donations.

The park will be closed during the renovation process and the project is slated for completion in October.
