The Columbia Parks and Recreation Department will ask the Columbia City Council to approve plans for a $35,000 reconstruction on Clyde Wilson Memorial Park, formerly Rockhill Park. The original proposal made to the public included plans to rebuild five bridges in the park, but Boy Scout Adam Stansfield, 16, and others already rebuilt one without city funding.

The original plan was presented to community members last October. Work was tentatively scheduled to start in January, but the parks department is not going to start work until it has city approval.

The parks department is waiting for the legal agreement between MU and the city to be finalized before presenting to the council.

“We can’t take it to the council until the MU paperwork goes through,” Toney Lowery, senior park planner, said.
