Trail Update - Anneberg Park

Anneberg trail map

Parks crews have repaired 2 miles of Linear Trail (from Richards Drive to Anderson Avenue), 3/4 miles of trail at Anneberg Park, and other park amenities since the 2018 Labor Day Flood. In Anneberg Park, ½-mile of the trail and the playground have not yet been repaired. These areas may qualify for additional funding to re-surface and/or re-route the trails and to install different play surfacing to mitigate the effects of future flooding. 

Parks and Recreation staff are currently working with the Kansas Department of Emergency Management (KDEM) Public Assistance Office and the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) to finalize damage assessments for all of the flood-affected areas. Once this process is complete, these agencies are expected to reimburse the City for the recovery efforts and provide additional funding to fully restore the Anneberg Park trails, parking lots, playground, and open spaces.

If you would like to learn more, please contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 785-587-2757 during regular business hours.
