both together


The Village of Elmwood has had an ongoing park improvement project for many years.  About four years ago new flooring was installed for the basketball court and the lighting in the park was improved.  Elmwood received a matching grant from the Land and Water Use Conservation Fund which was instrumental in getting this project completed.

For the next phase of the project the Village also received a matching grant from the Land and Water Use Conservation Fund to help fund new playground equipment, improvements to the trail, electrical, and accessibility.  We have also received donations of money, services, and talent.

The first phase will be the new playground.  This is scheduled to be completed by November, 2017. Due to the grading needed there will be two retaining walls installed which will also double a seating on the west edge of the park.  Unfortunately a tree had to be removed but it will be replaced. 

The community has been very supportive and encouraging with the playground project.  As much as possible we are using local talent and volunteers throughout the project.  We all look forward to the completion and to seeing the kiddos using the new playground!

To keep up with updates refer to the Elmwood newsletter at http://elmwoodnebraska.com/.  You can read past issues for earlier posts. 

We also have a facebook page called Friends of Elmwood Park.  If you would like to donate your time, money, or food to the project please contact Connie at the Village Office – 402-994-6705 or villageofelmwood@msn.com.
