MASON CITY – The Georgia Hanford Neighborhood is starting the next phase of it’s park improvement project.

On Friday, November 25, River City Fence removed part of the 40 year old fencing at the ball diamond and start the replacement process.

This phase of the fence replacement was completed by Tuesday, November 29th.

Major donors were Kinney-Lindstrom, Casey’s, neighborhood grant, Cerro Gordo Community Foundation, Alliant Energy, & Winnebago Industries Foundation.

Other projects completed this last year were new playground equipment and new lighting on the playground and Shelter house.

“The new lighting will discourage vandals,” said Chris Watts, who helps put together and organize the projects for the group.

The group is looking at more ball diamond improvements, a second shelter facility and possibly a water feature or frisbee golf.

“We are looking at moving the basketball court and putting a shelter in its place.  The basketball court would then be placed between the two shelters,” Watts said.  “This is the largest park in Mason City,” Watts continued.  “We have lots of ideas for improvements.”

This brings over $30,000.00 raised and donated to the park improvement project.

All donations are appreciated and are tax deductible by making them out to the City of Mason City, EARMARKED Georgia Hanford project.
