Over this past summer, Sedalia Park Maintenance staff came across an old, rustic, dull horse in the attic at the maintenance shop.

Landscaping Supervisor Shawna Yager recommended that Parks & Rec get  it restored, as the old horse was part of a carousel that operated in Liberty Park for years next to the Liberty Land Train.

"We are very excited to have this piece of the past showcased as Art in the Park thanks to local artist Linda Hoover who brought it back to life.

"The Park Maintenance crew got it installed today, we hope many will enjoy this treasure as they drive down third street," remarked Sedalia Parks & Rec Director Amy Epple.
