Work by Citizens Group Continues at Gunn Park

A Sunday drive through Gunn Park found Alison Leach digging in the entrance garden of Fort Scott’s largest park.

“I thought I would come out and work about an hour,” she said. “To get away from all the craziness (of the COVID 19 news). I am removing weeds, turning soil and seeing what we have to work with.”

She is part of the Citizens For Park Improvement group that has organized under the initiating of Seth Needham.

Some of the group met yesterday, but it was raining and cool, so Leach opted not to come.

Leach and her family, the Leach-Troutman family, have volunteered to enhance the entrance to the park, she said.

“Redbud Nurseries is donating $150 for this project,” Leach said.

Stockpiles of materials wait for the next Citizens For Park Improvement workday.
