A proposed park in Kalona is being made possible by multiple organizations in the county. The Partners in Reading Park will be located on a small lot west of the Kalona Library.
According to Ann Skaden, Director of the Kalona Library, they have design plans that call for landscaping, a few picnic tables, a concrete patio and trellises. Construction has not begun, but Skaden says they hope to have the project done by the end of the summer.
The park will be financed using a $20,000 grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation, and over $10,000 from the Kalona Library Foundation, Friends of the Library and Kalona Rotary.
