Falls City Park Projects Combined
10/18/2017

(KLZA)-- Falls City Councilman Don Ferguson updated the Council on a project to renovate and make additions to Legion Park on 21st Street in Falls City. 

Ferguson had begun to raise funds to build a full court basketball court at the park. In the midst of his efforts, he learned from Don Baldwin, of his efforts to raise funds to build an Armed Forces Commemoration area in the park. 

November, 18, 2018 will mark the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I.  Ferguson and Baldwin decided to combine the projects rather than work separately.  

Ferguson submitted a landscape design created by Paul Kiekhaefer with Grimm’s Gardens for the Council to review. 

The tennis court has already been removed. The plans call for seating, landscaping, lighting, a drinking fountain, and an entrance sign.   

Ferguson had hoped for some funds from the City for the project, but none were included in the recent budget. He plans to try and raise funds from the private sector and has been talking with several groups and businesses about donating.  

Ferguson also is hoping to upgrade the current baseball field in the park, noting the field is used quite a bit for practice by Falls City Recreation teams. He is hoping to add dirt and raise the level of the field. 

If you have questions, or would be interested in donating, you may contact Don Ferguson or Don Baldwin.
