Handicap Park Dedicated At Centennial Park Thursday (July 5, 2012)

Thursday night the Sedalia Park’s Department unveiled its latest project in the form of a new handicap accessible park, located at Centennial Park.  A good crowd of people were on hand to witness the ribbon cutting for the new park.  According to Sedalia Parks and Recreations Director Mark Hewitt, it was the culmination of two-years of planning by a lot of people – including Jason Kindle, and others who worked very hard to see the project go.

It all started with conversation from a mother of two handicapped children, and one who isn’t.  The mother,  Angie Waterson of Hughesville, spoke for a lot of other families in the same situation, when she approached Hewitt with the problem of not having a place where all her children can play together in the park. The handicap park is just the latest addition to the parks, which Hewitt  said is thanks to the taxpayer’s approval of the 3/8 cents tax for the parks department a few years ago.

The people of Sedalia are fortunate to have a park department, that is both pro-active, and also willing to take on a worthwhile project that comes from citizens of the area. The hope of everyone is the handicap park will be treated with the respect it deserves, so those among us who need it will always have it. To those responsible for this added facet to the crown jewel of Sedalia, which is the Sedalia Parks, we can all say well done.
