Moberly's latest project completed as promised is the Tannehill Park Splash Pad. The splash pad is 1500 square feet and has railroad themed water features. The restroom/pumphouse building design is inspired by old railroad depots such as the one still standing at Rocheport. This was the intended direction back in 2016 leading up the the sales tax renewal as it ties in Moberly's history, providing a unique experience. However, today it also ties in well with today's Depot Distract brand downtown.
Oldest Existing Park
Located behind the Post Office in downtown Moberly on the corner of Reed and Hagood Streets, Tannehill Park is Moberly’s oldest existing park. It has been in existence since at least the early 1900’s as a location for public gatherings after the Tannehill family donated the land in the late 1800's. American soldiers visited the park for entertainment and refreshments when traveling by train on their way to New York, where soldiers sailed for France.
This park is the location of the City’s Time Capsule buried to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the City of Moberly. The Time Capsule will be unveiled in 2016, the 150th anniversary of the City of Moberly.
