Cape parks projects are nearing completion. Capaha Park has been under construction for several months, and the finished design includes a new pavilion. At least 100 people will be able to fit into the new space, making it an attractive location for group gatherings. Director of parks and recreation Julia Thompson tells KZIM KSIM that when decided they will announce ribbon cutting.
New playground equipment is easily visible, with one section suited for 2- to 5-year-olds, the other for up to 12 years of age. Like Capaha Park, the downtown Red House Interpretive Center has several projects in the works. A beehive oven is to be built for you to enjoy the history of the center, other projects are in the works including an ox cart, and wooden stocks, which will be popular for photo opportunities. They were in use in Cape Girardeau into the early 1800s. As these projects wrap, officials will celebrate with Parks and Recreations Month in July, with an event at the Osage Centre featuring ice cream, crafts, games and prizes on the 10th.
