The City of Kissimmee’s Parks & Recreation Department announces the reopening of Mill Slough park and the KUA Cumbie Canine Court located at 2138 Agate Street after repairs to the natural stormwater functions.

The City of Kissimmee Commission approved on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the acceptance of $1,434,974.25 in federal grant funding that has been awarded to assist with the design and construction of the Mill Slough Restoration Project. This restoration was due to the damaged caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017.

This grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Emergency Watershed Protection Program will provide funding assistance in removing silt and debris, and restore the natural function of the Mill Slough.
