WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita city officials are planning big changes at three undeveloped park sites.

The parks are scheduled to get funding in the city’s 2016-2025 capital improvement plan. The parks aren’t expected to be completed before 2025.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2tE03aK ) plans include Pracht Wetlands, which would provide boardwalks and observation areas for wildlife viewing. It is scheduled to receive a total of $750,000 in the next two years.

Crystal Prairie Lake Park eventually would include a 215-acre lake, a swim beach, marina and 14 miles of trails. It is scheduled to receive $9.5 million between 2019 and 2024.

Central and Bristol Park is a 14.4-acre lot in east Wichita. No plans are final except it will include a police substation. It’s scheduled to receive $1.3 million between 2021 and 2023.
