Colwich Receives Statewide Recognition by the Sunflower Foundation
Phase one of the Colwich walking trail began with Kansas Department of Transportation and Federal Transportation funds when the stormwater detention pond; drainage and street improvements were made to 1st Street in 2004. The dream at that time was for the trail to extend around the detention pond and then connect to First Street at the corner of First and Chicago. Knowing funds were tight and the extension of the path was not top priority, the dream sat quietly on the back burner. Then Councilmembers Julie McLain, Stephanie Guy, and a group of citizens called the Park Committee, at the direction of Mayor Terry Spexarth, began to work on developing a long range plan for the 73 acres now known as the Colwich Memorial Park. Councilwoman Guy actively pursued funding through the Sunflower Foundation for the remaining two phases of the walking trail which resulted in over one mile of walking trails for the public to enjoy.
