April "Know Your Parks" Features Sequiota Waterway Improvements

The April episode of the Springfield-Greene County Park Board's "Know Your Parks" television show is now airing on Mediacom Connections Channel 22 and is also streaming online at http://1.usa.gov/AprilKYP.

We're on the road to Sequiota Park this month to learn how the Park Board is improving its waterways in historic parks throughout the system and what that means for water quality in southwest Missouri. We also learn what changes are coming to some popular spring events.

"Know Your Parks" shows are available at 7 p.m., Fridays and 9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month on Mediacom Channel 22. The show also re-airs on CityView, Mediacom channel 80 and 80.1, the City's government channel throughout the month. Visit www.springfieldmo.gov/cityview for a monthly schedule. Viewers also can find the program on the Park Board's homepage at www.parkboard.org or on Mediacom's Video on Demand.
