The wading pool in Gilham Park will soon be permanently closed due to disrepair that cannot be salvaged.  Do you want to replace it with an amazing new Spray Ground that is not only fun and safe for your kids, but an all around cool place to hang out?  If so, please sign this petition letting PIAC (the folks who fund these things) know that you support the best and most awesome sprayground in KC!  A PIAC request for funding the spraygrounds in Gillham Park has already been submitted (#330561). While we don't have funding yet, we are hopeful.  The spraygrounds are part of the Gillham Road Improvement Project ("GRIP") Master Plan. Because the wading pool is in bad disrepair, it is a priority to design and install the spraygrounds in 2016. Parks and Rec has hired a consultant to design the spraygrounds, but community input is necessary because we want enough funding to provide the best spraygrounds in KC!  So we need them to know how many of you support this plan!  Parks and Rec has agreed for the GRIP neighborhoods to have two meetings with Parks and the design consultant:

November 3, 2015 and November 4, 2015
5:00 pm to 6:30 pm
Central Presbyterian (3501 Campbell)

The meetings will be open house format so folks may come and go as they please, bring the kids, just show up and show your support! In advance of the meetings, you may want to visit other local spraygrounds for ideas, or better yet, google some of the best designed spray grounds in the nation!  Below is a list of KC spraygrounds provided by Parks:

Spring Valley Park @ 28th St and Brooklyn Ave
Central Park @ 31st St and Indiana Ave
Blue Valley Park @ 23rd St and Topping Ave
Harmony Park @ 10th St and Agnes Ave
Loose Park @ 52nd Terr and Summit Ave
Sunnyside Park @ 83rd St & Summit St
