GRANDVIEW, Mo. — Two Grandview parks are back to normal after floods damaged the grounds in October.

The rainstorm damaged part of a fence at the Tails and Trails Dog Park. Flood waters swept away most of the mulch at River Oaks Park and covered the bridge with debris.

Both parks are in a floodplain, so the city can't do much to prevent future flooding. A city spokesperson said the parks department knew the locations would be prone to flooding when it built the parks.

There is no cost estimate on the most recent fixes. A similar flood in 2017 did slightly more damage. It cost the city roughly $8,000 in repairs.
