Did you know that Blue Springs has its own Central Park?

clock June 28, 2012 15:30 by author Jeff Quibell

This undeveloped gem nestled in our downtown district will soon be the home of a historic building, thanks to the generous donations of local Blue Springs residents and the tenacious efforts of the Blue Springs Historical Society. Over the past year the Blue Springs Historical Society, in conjunction with the City of Blue Springs and the Kansas City Southern Railroad, have raised funds and gathered support to save our downtown train depot from demolition. On July 29th at 10am, the depot will begin its move down Main Street to its new home in Central Park. If you would like to participate in the celebration of the saving of our depot, join us on Main Street Friday morning and join the parade as we escort the depot to its new home.

Also located in Central Park is the city’s first Community Garden. A part of the Let’s Move initiative, the city provided the park land and infrastructure for the garden, and collaborated with StandUp! Blue Springs to manage and implement this exciting new amenity for our residents. The following pictures show the success of the garden.

It’s hard to dispute, when Blue Springs residents set their minds to accomplishing a goal, exciting things happen!

Corks & Canvas Art & Wine Walk–June 23rd

clock June 18, 2012 15:35 by author Jeff Quibell

Friends, Romans, And Countrymen,

    I wanted to bring to your attention a special event coming to Downtown Blue Springs this weekend (Saturday, June 23, 2012, from 2 PM until 8 PM). My friend, Bonnie Hutchcroft, the owner of Hattey's on Main,  has asked me to be her "Artist in Residence" for the Corks and Canvas Art Show (think of the Crossroads District First Fridays but for Blue Springs--and without the long walks, parking dilemma, tall buildings, etc., and, of course, you might also add "without professional artists,"  given yours truly as a participant).   Bonnie and I will display a number of projects (both completed and in-progress) for your amusement. There will also be a select amount of reproductions for sale at affordable prices, a portion of the proceeds from which will go to Downtown Alive, the organizational effort to maintain the quality of life and business at the historic core of Blue Springs. Rest assured that there will be much more art to see along Main Street, too!  I have attached a flyer providing further details. (

) Bonnie and I hope you will stop by 1005  W. Main for visit on Saturday, June 23!

June 23, 2012 from 2pm until 8pm Downtown Blue Springs will host Corks and Canvas. Our friend Kim Roam has agreed to be Hatteys on Main Guest Artist. Kim is known locally and has been recognized nationally for his incredible artwork, one of which is signed by the late Jimmy Stewart who Kim depicted in one of his drawings. Kim will be displaying a number of projects both completed and in progress. There will also be a select amount of reproductions for sale at affordable prices... a portion of the proceeds will go to Downtown Alive, the organizational effort to maintain the historic core of Blue Springs. We are so honored that Kim has agreed to participate and share his unbelievable talent and wonderful sense of humor.
To use Kim's words "think of the Crossroads District, First Fridays, but for Blue Springs...without the long walks, parking dilemma, tall buildings, etc. etc. etc." Come for an afternoon and evening of strolling through Blue Springs Downtown enjoying wine samples and artists in many of the shops and different venues. I have attached a flyer for Corks and Canvas... (

) an event you will not want to miss. Come enjoy a glass of wine and other beverages... share and enjoy our excitement of presenting Kim Roam.
