Wetland park could be great asset, attraction

Plans for a wetland nature park in northwest Wichita sound exciting. The $7.2 million project would be built at Cadillac Lake near Maize Road and 29th Street North and would feature boardwalks and stations to observe the wide range of wildlife that live or pass through the wetlands, including thousands of birds. As Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell noted, the 56-acre park would be a great asset for the community and a potential tourist attraction.
