MIDLAND - Midland residents love their parks and the city wants to make sure those parks are something to be proud of well into the future.

On Tuesday morning, city officials and residents helped kick off the City of Midland's Parks Endowment Fund Campaign.

The campaign called "20 Million Dollars By 2020" is aimed at raising money to help keep parks up to par and add some features in the future.

One thing residents said the city lacks in a recent survey are hiking and biking trails.

Members of the advisory board said contributions to the fund are tax deductible.
