TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Community members gathered to discuss plans for a new park tonight.

The idea of turning the overgrown brush at Southboro Park into a family friendly attraction and walking trail began with a local mom, Christina Rondash.

The idea has now turned into a plan, drawn out by Parks and Recreation Park Planner Bill Riphahn.

Neighbors and community members gathered tonight to look over the plans for the four acre park.

Riphahn says they are hoping to have the park complete by next year.

Meanwhile, Rondash is working on a pancake feed to help raise money for the park -- with the parks' price tag estimated, at around $120,000.
