Kalamazoo’s Parks and Recreation Department will apply for grants to support the Farmers’ Market. Specifically, the department will apply for a Trust Fund Development and Recreation Passport grant to add a fruit and vegetable-themed playground and replace the current restroom building.

The new playground will be accessible year-round in Edison and will provide additional space for children to play. Capacity for the new restroom will double while increasing storage and office space.

Public comments will be welcomed at the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting on Tuesday, March 2 at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be streamed live on Facebook and YouTube. Those wishing to comment can do so via calling (269) 226-6573 starting at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2 through the end of the meeting's public comment period.
