Improvements Continuing at Legion Park

The facelift at Legion Park will continue this summer as the City of Memphis begins implementation of a landscaping program designed by the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Street Superintendent Roy Monroe stated the city is pursuing another MDC grant that will help offset the cost of removing five trees from the park as well as the planting of 21 new trees on the ground surrounding the new city swimming pool.

City crews currently are working on the area immediately south of the swimming pool. A retaining wall has been constructed for an elevated rock platform that will be the site of a gazebo for spectators at the pool.

The MDC plan calls for planting 13 large-growing deciduous trees such as oak, ash, or maple that will serve as shade trees for the parking area, the park shelter and the playground equipment. The plan also calls for a number of red maple trees to be planted along the drainage area on the southwest corner of the property to separate the park from the adjacent residential area while also drawing emphasis away from the entrance roadway to the park.

The cost of the project has been estimated at $4,000. The city is seeking additional grant funding and also has authorized the sale of memorials to be placed at the park. Family members may donate $150 to the park project

That would allow a new park bench to be dedicated to a loved one. Memorials may also be made toward the cost of planting the new trees, and Monroe indicated he was reviewing options for plaques or memorial stones that could be used to dedicate the purchase in memory of a family member.
