Prairie Village greenlights Harmon Park all-inclusive playground project

Prairie Village is moving forward on the design and construction of the all-inclusive play set at Harmon Park. It will be located near the Santa Fe shelter at the south end of the park. File photo.

The Prairie Village city council Monday gave the OK to restart discussion on a Harmon Park project that could provide new playground equipment and relocate tennis courts and parking.

While the governing body approved the $575,000 project in the 2018 budget cycle, Harmon Park’s update has been put on hold due to the Village Square and civic center conversations — both of which were determined to have potential construction conflicts with the playground. With movement on Village Square’s skate park and performance pad, and the pause on the civic center conversation, city staff is looking to move forward with the playground project.
