In December of 2022, the City of Hartford received notification that they had been approved for a $100,000 Fun Park Grant. According to the award letter, the funds will be used to install play equipment, sunshade, interactive musical play structures, and site amenities at McClung Music Park.

McClung Music Park is located at the old Hartford Elementary School building on West Main and Maple Street.

“Before the grant, we added a playground for younger children, new swings, and currently putting in a basketball court,” stated Danielle Woodard, Hartford’s water clerk. “This grant will allow us to add a playground for older children, musical equipment, and a shade over the current playground equipment. We will also be adding trash cans, grills, benches, and other amenities…the park will be wheelchair accessible.” 

Woodard stated there is no estimated start date. “We have stages that need to be completed before we move on to each step.”

She expressed the city’s gratitude towards WAPDD for their assistance with the grant process. The community is grateful for the efforts of Mayor Richard Hartsfield, and Woodard, in providing children and families with a park to enjoy.
