Old Dutch Mill, other facilities get spruced up in Smith Center parks

SMITH CENTER – Improvements to Smith Center parks have been enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

Recently, a woman stopped at Wagner Park on her way through from Texas.  She expressed her gratitude for the care taken to provide a pleasant location that is beautifully landscaped.

In addition to landscaping, grant funding helped pay for the installation of heat and air conditioning and structural updates to the Old Dutch Mill in Wagner Park, the addition of benches and trash receptacles and a new parking surface. Plans also include installation of a vault bathroom at Roadside Park and improvements to park shelters.
