Comment submitted on the Kansas City Parks & Recreation website:

Good afternoon,

As you are no doubt aware, there are a number of bronze "plaques" honoring individuals throughout Loose Park. They are usually affixed to the back of the wrought iron benches and are elsewhere, as well; a couple are inside the pergola overlooking the Rose Garden.

I am interested in learning more about one of these plaques. So if you could give me contact information about this, I could direct my questions to that individual. Or, maybe, you could simply transfer this comment to the appropriate person and we can "go from there".

Thank you for helping me with this matter.
