Effective Feb 8, 2016, the City of Overland Parks & Recreation Dept. will start the procedure of removing the playground & swing structures located at Legion Park and Mort Jacobs Park due to safety violations. At this time, it is unclear on the time frame for the replacement of these structures. Please know that Mort Jacobs Park is still available for private pavilion rentals throughout the summer of 2016.
