CASS COUNTY TOURISM CONTINUES TO SUPPORT PARK IMPROVEMENTS....
In 2013 the Greenwood Park and Recreation Committee applied for funding to continue improvement efforts within the Village park.  Those improvements follow  the development and improvement plan that has been created by the committee.  The plan identifies enhancements and facility replacement needs of the park, for the benefit of the citizens.  In 2011/12 a new handicap accessible modern restroom was installed to replace the facility damaged in a storm.  At the same time a new ADA (American's With Disabilities Act) compliant water fountain and sidewalks were added. In 2013/14 a new 3-sided informational kiosk was installed in the center of the park cul-de-sac.  The kiosk will be used to promote Village events, promote local business and attractions and inform visitors of nearby attractions in the county.  As a part of the same grant application, and thanks to generous matching funds provided by the Ashland/Greenwood youth soccer organization, portable bleachers were purchased to provide more seating for the growing number of fans and supporters that attend the youth soccer league games.

These improvements have been made possible thanks to generous support from The Cass County Tourism Capital Improvement grant program, which is funded by proceeds generated from lodging tax dollars collected in the county for motel, bed-n-breakfast and campground rentals.  The grant program is a competitive process requiring a detailed application and matching funds, which in the case of recent Village applications have been provided by the Village via Keno proceeds and by private donors and Foundations such as the Peter Kiewit Foundation.  Park and Rec Vice-Chairman Jim Swenson reports, "Cass County Tourism's support has been critical to our renovation and improvement efforts in the park.  An attractive park with functional amenities serves as a gathering spot for youth and families and allows them to spend quality time together, encourages exercise and  healthy life-styles, and builds community pride.  In a small community such as Greenwood, funding for park improvements and maintenance is limited, the developments we have gained in the park would not be possible without the investments made by Cass County Tourism".

Recently, new electrical service was installed within the park by the Village staff.  Future park improvement plans include; planting new trees to replace those lost in recent years, improvements to the ball field, and a large scale effort to replace and upgrade the playground with new ADA compliant equipment and rubber surfacing.  The committee has acquired a conceptual design for the playground and will seek other concepts to review and consider.  This will require grant support and it is the intention of the committee to apply to Cass County Tourism and other sources once again for funding assistance.

Take time to visit your village park and enjoy the amenities it offers.

The following pictures are of the bleachers and the kioSk that was purchase recently..
