This morning, we took a look at the history of Springfield’s Phelps Grove Park. As a part of KSMU’s ongoing series A Sense of Place, KSMU’s Missy Shelton now reports on efforts to re-vitalize the park using historical information.
Take a stroll through Phelps Grove Park, located just south of the Missouri State University campus and you’ll see lots of trees, tennis courts, a pavilion. But area residents say if you look closer, you’ll see there’s a lot of work that needs to be done. Richard Crabtree is president of the University Heights Neighborhood Association.
