WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The Wichita City Council voted on park improvements at Tuesday’s meeting.

The council voted 7 to 0 to approve the Wichita Park and Recreation Department’s request of $550,100 to improve the Seasons Venue, make landscape improvements and fix roads and sidewalks at OJ Watson Park, located at 3022 S. McLean.

The park is the city’s only fully staffed destination park with train rides, pony rides, pedal boats and mini golf.

The money for the improvements comes from general obligation bonds.

The council voted 6 to 1 to approve the Wichita Park and Recreation Department’s request to convert two of the tennis courts under the lights into six more pickleball courts at Edgemoor Park, located at 5815 E. 9th. The six current courts do not have lights.

Funding for the project comes from the Light Up Edgemoor group, which has raised $27,000 to go to the conversion. The Wichita Parks Foundation committed to matching funds, bringing the project total to $54,000.
