City of Kelso Park Facility Plan
The City of Kelso has updated the City of Kelso Park Facility Plan. The purpose of this plan is to create a Catlin Spray Park Master Plan, prioritize improvements and opportunities within our current parks, and to identify areas lacking in parks.

This work was presented to the City Council at the regular Council meeting on March 6th. Before the Council will make any final decisions about adopting the plan on April 3rd , the public is invited to view the plan and comment to the City.
