  • The playground equipment in Buscher Park is scheduled for replacement in 2024 because of its age, condition and challenges in finding replacement parts. Other work planned includes adding concrete curbing, a retaining wall and drainage. Proposed work is estimated at $350,000. Staff are seeking grant funding to help cover a portion of the project’s costs.

    The project was identified in Mankato’s Community Investment Plan as part of the parks capital replacement fund. For more information contact staff at 311 or 507-387-8600.
