Two communities have received AARP Community Challenge grants to improve their outdoor amenities.

In the Kansas City area, the Raytown Chamber of Commerce Building Foundation will install a shared-use path on a bike trail in front of its building, with two park benches and a water fountain. The project is scheduled to be finished this year.

In St. Louis, Trailnet, a nonprofit that advocates for better access to safe walking and biking options, will create a parklet at the intersection of Laclede and Vandeventer avenues.
