Kearney Public Schools Foundation understands that much of the credit for the quality education and success of our graduates is due to the commitment of current and former teachers and staff of Kearney Public Schools.

Recognition Falls at Harmon Park is intended to commemorate and thank former teachers and staff of Kearney Public Schools.

Harmon Park has been Kearney’s iconic park since 1924. Since its establishment various improvements have been added including a swimming pool, tennis courts, foundation, unique rock garden and in 1940 the Light house. Recognition Falls will be the next unique feature for all to enjoy.

Part of the project includes improvements to some of the sidewalks, landscaping and seating areas that are in need.

The fund drive for the construction of this new feature in the Harmon Park Rock Garden will be conducted through the KPS Foundation.

Following construction, individual plaques will be for sale throughout the year.

A fund will be maintained through the foundation for further project enhancement, building additional sidewalk and establishing a reserve/maintenance fund for the city of Kearney’ Park’s Department to use in the future.
