McCandless Park is a wonderful resource to the families of Wymore.
Our park is in desperate need of a new bathroom facility and concession stand. The cost of this building is approximately $120,000. The current bathroom was built in the 1960's, it lacks lighting, privacy, and most importantly a sink for handwashing. The park is used by travelers, people watching little league baseball games, and families having picnics. The Wymore community deserves a park that is a reflection of a vibrant thriving community.
Although, the bathroom/concession stand is our main priorty at this time we hope to purchase an inclusive, handicapped accessible playground for the 5-12 year olds. Approximately 30% of elementary children in the Southern school district have some type of sensory deficit.
Already over $60,000 has been put into this park with 2-5 year old playground, trash receptacles, benches, picnic tables, a shelter, and security cameras. We have raised another $50,000 toward our next phase.
It gives us great satisfaction to hear our community remark how they appreciate what we have done so far. Please help us continue to move in a positive direction by donating financially. Our community desrves to be proud of this great asset.
