Sioux City Casino Bumps Out Park

-->
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City group is seeking another site to build a city park after the planned spot was sold as part of a $120 million casino project.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/12gUTNK ) a committee is considering at least two sites after the city sold land that had been designated for the $6.8 million Cone Park.

The estate of Ruth Cone has committed about $2.4 million to the planned park, which is expected to include a water feature, amphitheater and ice skating rink.

Because that land was sold for use in a proposed casino, the committee is considering other property.

Council member Rhonda Capron says a downtown location is preferred.

Cone's funding stipulates the money be used for a park but doesn't specify a location.

She died in 1981.
