Have you been by your Historic Quanah City Park to see the other big change that is in place? It is for recreation? Is it public art? Is it both?
As we previously announced in August, Friends of the Park selected two designs out of 23 total student entries for the new backboards for the basketball court. Since that time, through funding provided by the American Recovery Plan, the park has installed a whole new concrete basketball playing surface. This smooth concrete surface replaces the uneven and worn asphalt surface and was coordinated by Friends of the Park committee member Becky Parker.
In addition, this past week, through the coordination and efforts of Friends of the Park committee member Denise Nowell, along with the generous giving of time and work from Max Nowell, Heath McAllister, and Jonathan Butler, the new posts and goals have been installed. A special thanks also goes to Medicine Mound Ranch Store for providing the concrete used to install the posts.
Please go by to see this new addition to your park. Friends of the Park is very happy to have been a part of making this happen with the help of so many, and we hope everyone will enjoy playing some basketball and seeing this first installation of art in the park.
