The City of Hoisington continues with quality-of-life additions to Bicentennial Park. Last week, the city installed four sets of cornhole boards next to the horseshoe pits.

Hoisington City Manager Jonathan Mitchell said the new feature is just another way to get residents out and about.

"We have been trying to find ways to get people engaged with our parks," said Mitchell. "Bicentennial Park has seen a lot of new life breathed into it lately."

The solid steel boards are weather resistant and painted with the Hoisington Cardinal logo. Users will need to bring their own bags to enjoy boards.

"We still have our horseshoe pits, but the new generation horseshoes seems to be this cornhole game," added Mitchell. "We thought we would put these permanent boards out there and see how it goes."

In addition to cornhole boards, Hoisington and other agencies have recently overhauled the configuration of the baseball and softball fields, constructed a dog park and added pickleball courts.
