Posted: Oct 18 2013 by ppowers

 The Webster City Parks and Recreation Commission late Thursday afternoon approved the plans for new playground equipment at East Twin Park. Director Kent Harfst presented two designs for the commission to review. The first design consisting of climbing areas, a tornado slide, a swing set and another slide that would be located in the former tennis court. This week work started on the demolition of the court that has been in usage for many years. Residents who would like to play tennis can take advantage of the court at high school. Harfst plans to contact Mark Boland of Boland Recreation and Miracle Playground Equipment on their recommended option. The colors of the playground equipment being proposed is red and yellow. At a future commission meeting, the board will look at fund raising opportunities for purchasing the new playground equipment at East Twin Park. The commission will also consider applying for grants for the playground facility.

The fall season has been a busy one for the local park and recreation staff with youth flag football and volleyball, aerobics and karate classes showing positive numbers of participants.

Director Kent Harfst said he will invite the members of the Hamilton County Conservation Board to the next meeting on November 21 at 5:15 at the Fuller Hall Conference Room to discuss issues between both boards. Both the Webster City Parks and Recreation Commission and the Hamilton County Conservation Board meet twice each year on matters involving recreation activities in Webster City and Hamilton County.
