KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The city’s parks and recreation department is ready to dive into plans for new aquatics facilities.

The come-and-go meeting will take place Wednesday, Dec. 7 from 4-6 p.m. at Southeast Community Center, 4201 E. 63rd Street.

The city hired Waters Edge Aquatic Design from Lenexa to assess the existing conditions of all 27 indoor and outdoor pools and spray parks across the Kansas City.
