Kenagy and Minor-Smith Parks Enjoy New Playground Equipment

? Raytown Parks and Recreation continue their efforts to update our parks to enhance our community and visitors experience. The latest upgrade is replacing playground equipment in Kenagy and Minor-Smith Parks. The structures include a firepole, polyethylene slides, tunnels, roofs, permalene panels, powder-coated climbers & steering wheels, Tendertuff coated steel decks and handrails, ADA access ramp, interactive panels, 4” concrete pad with 4” of pour-in-place rubber surfacing, and age appropriate playground safety signage.

The equipment is from Landscape Structures out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and was installed by ATHCO, LLC at a cost of $74,550. The City was able to purchase the equipment on the Cooperating School District Purchasing Agreement to allow for the best pricing.

C. Lee Kenagy Park is located at 79th & Raytown Rd. This 18-acre park includes six shelter houses (2 available for rentals), 4 lighted tennis courts, 2 playgrounds, a horseshoe pit, a softball field, walking trail – .44 miles in length, a fishing pond and the “Raytown Skate Park” for skateboarders and rollerbladers. Approximately 1100 people visit the park daily.

Minor Smith Park is located at 81st & Ash. This 10-acre park includes a basketball court, two lighted tennis courts, shelter house, playground and walking trails – outside loop is .43 miles and inside loop is .31 miles in length. Approximately 150 people visit the park daily.

The City of Raytown’s Parks Department also has oversight for SuperSplash USA, Sarah Colman-Livengood Park, Southwood Park, Raytown BMX Track, Little Blue Trace Park and Henry C. Kritser Park. The City is fortunate to have several very good not-for-profit organizations providing youth sports for children. The parks department partners with these groups to ensure that youth sports needs are met in the community and the organizations rely on the City to provide a variety of facilities required to offer quality programs.
