DUQUESNE, Mo. — The first phase of Duquesne Memorial Park is completed and officials are looking at future projects.
The city broke ground on the near quarter-of-a-mile trail next to City Hall in November. It was finished within a month.
Officials are now focusing on completing the rest of the park and have applied for a matching grant.
“We plan to build a pavillion, which will be available for people’s use. We will have tables under there. We are talking about also perhaps a splash pad, playground equipment, restroom facilities,” said Bill Sherman, Duquesne Mayor.
Mayor Sherman says the pavilion and playground equipment are expected to cost more than $100,000.
