Central Park is located at 4th and Broadway. This 1 acre lighted park offers a water fountain, large gazebo with benches for audience, William Henry Hatch statue and a WWI and WWII memorial. Benches dot the landscape under the shade of mature trees. For walkers, 3.5 times around the sidewalk = 1 mile.
The bandstand is available for rental. The cost is $20 for a half day period (9AM-3PM or 4PM-10PM) and $30 for a full day. Call 573-221-0154 to check availability. In order to reserve a shelter house, you must come to the Parks & Recreation Department (320 Broadway) to fill out a contract and pay the fee. Until that has been completed, a shelter house cannot be reserved.
