Located on the southwest corner of Canterbury Street and Northview Road, Hess Park & Playground covers seven acres and is in close proximity to the Meadowlark Trail head. The neighborhood park provides a clean, safe and accessible playground for pre-school and school-age children. Select playground equipment is also handicap accessible.
Hess Park & Playground was funded by the City of McPherson and community donations. A community build resulted in the installation of new equipment and sidewalks. Ongoing improvements include installing additional seating, expanding the picnic area, developing a walking trail, planting trees and utilizing waterways for recreational opportunities.
