Beautification of former Land Bank lot

The Scarritt neighborhood association bought a lot and made some improvements. We met with KCMO Parks and Rec to get assistance. Neighbors were asked to volunteer to kill weeds, prep soil and plant landscaping materials. We fundraised for additional landscaping (we have a little money to begin) and rocks for paths and benches.

We were able to remove debris and installed huge boulders, in the hillside, that will prevent future erosion. Recently, we received funding to install plumbing that will add water to the park, as well as give us the opportunity to perform future improvements to the lot.
