LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Lawrence could soon have a new city park, which someday might be part of a citywide trail system.

City commissioners on Tuesday gave preliminary approval to accepting a donation of 8 acres of land that includes a large pond and forest. The land is owned by the Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/17M47Bz ) no work on the park will happen until grant funding is found, and that would be next year at the earliest.

A private group is seeking funding for the first phase, which would be a concrete trail around most of the pond. City officials say the property could someday become an intersecting point for a trail system across the city.
