The park will take over an adjacent plot at 400 S. Fillmore Ave.
At their Jan. 3 meeting, the Kirkwood City Council unanimously voted in favor of purchasing a plot of land at 400 S. Fillmore Ave. for $70,000 to expand Fillmore Park. The funds will come from the ½ Center Parks and Recreation Sales Tax Fund. The property’s cost is $67,500 with the remaining $2,500 to be spent on legal and closing costs. A house that was on site was demolished earlier last year. The community will be invited to discuss plans for the site in public meetings. In the meantime, tell us in our comments: What would you like to see in this new addition to Fillmore Park?
