Kiwanis Park has been a community gathering palace in Elizabethton for years, providing a place for children to play, families to host events, and sports enthusiasts to practice. Unfortunately for these community members, over the years the park has gradually become worn down and in need of repairs. Fortunately though,  Bartleby students Hannah Edwards and Morgan Jones have taken it upon themselves to breathe new life into the park.

According to Edwards, “Some parents have stopped bringing their kids to the park as they feel it is no longer a safe place.” The pair hopes to remedy this by making a number of updates, including a new jungle gym, removing vandalism from existing equipment, and replacing the roof of one of the pavilions. In addition to the structural changes being made, cosmetic landscaping will also be included in order to further enhance the park’s atmosphere. The funding required for this project is being provided by the Elizabethton Parks and Recreation department, as well as a generous donor. The project is currently in its early stages; however the pair hopes to move into the construction phase in the near future.
