-Taking its lead from the recently completed
Marceline Community Master Plan, the Walt Disney Hometown Museum is excited to
announced a planned extension to E.P. Ripley Park beginning on Monday, April 2,
Located in the heart of Walt Disney's beloved
Marceline, the new addition located between the eastern most side of Ripley Park
and the railroad tracks will become the eventual home for a reimagined 'Midget
Autopia' track and an additional stretch of green space that directly links the
Santa Fe Railway tracks to the land they originally donated to create the park
After consultation with the City and local
businesses, physical work on the transformation will begin Monday with the
removal of the road surface, surface grading, and the installation of curbs and
sidewalks, forever restricting vehicle access on the east side of Ripley Park.
Barriers will go up around the worksite as early as Sunday, April 1, 2018.
Phase one of the project is expected to be completed
by May 25, 2018.
