KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The 15 and Mahomies Foundation is helping transform Martin Luther King Jr. Square Park.

The foundation is building an all-inclusive destination play site at the park, which is located at 1900 Swope Parkway in Kansas City, Missouri.

The new play site will celebrate Dr. King's legacy and help kids learn about the Civil Rights history of Kansas City.

You can buy a personalized Legacy Brick to be placed at the 15 and the Mahomies Playground.

They will be available for sale in mid-February.

You can find more information about the brick program by going online.

There will also be a Community Engagement Session in early February to get resident input on certain aspects of the playground.

The playground is scheduled to be completed in the fall.
