(Mankato, MN) – Playground equipment has been selected for Washington Park and is expected to be installed later this summer.
The new playground concept was revealed in a press release from the city. The equipment will feature a railroad theme to align with area history. The park, which is located on North Fourth Street – was once the site of a main railroad line – the “Fourth Street Route” – for the Minnesota Valley Railway Company. The city of Mankato purchased the property in 1913. It was dedicated as Washington Park in 1915.
