Re: Lucy Kaegi Trail Creation

The Eudora Parks & Recreation Foundation’s mission is to create, promote, preserve and enhance recreational resources to ensure current and future generations enjoy a healthy quality of life. The Lucy Kaegi Trail project aligns perfectly with this mission and our vision – to enhance, help preserve, create, promote, and advance the acquisition and use of public recreation programs, lands and facilities of the City of Eudora Parks and Recreation. By creating a trail surrounding the ballfields at the Eudora Parks and Recreation Center and Lucy Kaegi Park Park we will further invest in our vision for the Eudora community.  

An ADA-accessible trail around the park and ballfields  would ensure access to recreational opportunities to residents visiting the facilities for recreation or spectatingNot only would this project create a desirable recreational location in itself, it would create new access points and enhance access to the ballfields, Eudora Parks and Recreation Facilities and the playground at that location.

This project would also make new connections to streets and would aid the city’s access from streets to infrastructure. Creating the Lucy Kaegi Trail will attract residents to use the area more often and will provide a better connected trail/sidewalk system for the community’s recreational use. 

Creating a Lucy Kaegi Trail will go a long way to making the healthy choice the easy choice for Eudora residents with differing levels of mobility and recreational interests. Please support this project. 

Kind Regards, 

Justin Eddings,
