Historic Fassnight Park Featured in "Know Your Parks"

The August 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/AugKYP.

On this month's show, we're at Fassnight Park, taking a look at some of the steps the City of Springfield and the Parks Department are taking to preserve this historic park's amenities. We also discover why a time capsule was buried here in the year 2000, and why we should mark our calendars for July 4th, 2025.

"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.
