A new park in Kalona will begin taking shape over the next few weeks. The Partners in Reading Park is being made possible by the Kalona Library Foundation, Friends of the Library, Kalona Rotary and Washington County Riverboat Foundation. It will be located on a small lot west of the Kalona Library. Director of the Library, Ann Skaden, says the wooden trellis and arbor are currently being built by a local resident Trent Yoder. After those are installed in the coming weeks, a concrete patio will be poured. Finishing touches, like landscaping, will be completed next year.
