Plates for Parks Bill Signing/ Pracht Wetlands Groundbreaking Set for Saturday

Contact: City Communications |

The City of Wichita is hosting two public events which are scheduled for Saturday, April 21:

Plates for Parks Bill Signing
Hampton Inn Northwest lobby, 10047 W. 29th St. N.

  • 1:30 p.m. Mingle with refreshments
  • 2 p.m. Governor Jeff Colyer will sign HB2599, the Plates For Parks license plate bill, into law.

This bill will allow the sale of a specialty license plate bearing the Wichita city flag. Proceeds from the plate, an annual $50 per plate royalty fee, will go towards improving the City-owned parks.

Pracht Wetlands Park groundbreaking
The event will take place just east of the Hampton Inn Northwest, 10047 W. 29th St. N.

  • Immediately following the Plates for Parks bill signing, there will be a groundbreaking ceremony for nearly $2 million in improvements at the Pracht Wetlands Park (formerly Cadillac Lake). The work is scheduled to begin within the next month.

If it is raining, there will be a ceremonial groundbreaking inside the hotel lobby. Guests may use the Hampton Inn parking lot for both events.
