#32 Murdock Park
1808 E Murdock
Background: The park was bought with a grant from H.U.D., through the “Parks-in-Cities” program in 1972.
It was named after Colonel Marshall Mortimer Murdock.
He was the founder of the Wichita Eagle and served as state senator and Wichita postmaster.
What We Did: There is a playground that we tried out. We walked around the area. There is a basketball court, tennis court, and baseball diamond.
There was a weird cement feature, it looked like it had a sign on it at some point. It would be interesting to find out what it was designed to do in the park.
