The Melvern Friends of the Trails Committee, (managing the park known as Melvern Riverfront Park and Trails, Melvern, KS, located at the north side of Melvern, between the Marais des Cygnes Valley Jr./High School campus and the Marais des Cygnes River), are excited to announce that they have received a grant for $24,672.00, from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks through the Recreation Trail Program of which 20% of the $24,672.00 is to be paid back in cash or in kind labor. This grant money will go to support an upgrade of the park to an outdoor natural science laboratory consisting of educational signage throughout the Melvern Riverfront Park and Trails facility, as well as continuing to be a recreation site. The above grant will also finance the purchasing of maintenance equipment and supplies and other upgrading needs. The upgrade of Melvern Riverfront Park and Trails is a in progress activity with the upgrade to be completed no later than September 30th, 2025.
The monetary or in kind 20% match is required for this grant as stated above. With the increase of costs since the grant application was submitted, the Friends of the Trails are finding that inflation has added approximately $5,000.00 that is now needed to meet the overall budget to complete the park upgrade project. If you are interested in supporting the upgrade of the Melvern Riverfront Park and Trails Friends group with a donation, please contact Douglas Bush via email at: email@example.com Volunteers are also needed with the upgrade of said park.

The surrounding rural countryside is made up of creeks, native timber, crop and pasture land. Two branches of the BNSF Railroad come together here. We have close access to several Federal Reservoirs with Melvern Lake being located only 4 miles west of town. The community is very active and committed to maintaining the friendly rural values while moving into the future.
