June "Know Your Parks" Visits Grant Beach

The June 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/JUneKYP.

On this month's show, we take a visit to one of our oldest park locations, Grant Beach Park, to discover the new pool improvements that are taking our outdoor pools into a new era of functionality. We'll also find out how an in-house concessions operation is keeping park visitors fed and hydrated all summer long.

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.
