GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - A Grand Island city park will be getting more than $86,000 of upgrades next spring.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/1qJpqCz ) that improvements to George Park in the northwest section of the city will include an 8-foot-wide concrete walking trail.

Parks and Recreation Director Todd McCoy says the trail will connect the west end of the park and the east end of the park and connect ball fields to parking areas.

McCoy says the park has been plagued by low-lying areas that often stay wet and become mud holes after rains or watering.

Contractors will install underground drainage pipe in trouble areas before paving the walkway across the park. That walkway should aid youngsters in strollers and the elderly with canes and walkers.
