Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Wasilla and Mat-Su Boroug

Total Budget: $5,000

Area of Focus: Economic and community development

Activity Type: Community Development: General

Summary: Playground in Williwaw Subdivision

The most economically challenged area in the greater Wasilla community is the Williwaw subdivision. For over a year the Club has been working with the Mat-Su Borough and Mat-Su Health Foundation with the concept/goal to build an inclusive playground for the families of this densely populated neighborhood. The Health Foundation has requested Rotary to study and question the community before they entertain funding from Mat-Su Trails and Parks. The Borough has a land parcel ready to donate to Rotary. Phase one is to study the feasibility of the park in this neighborhood at the request of the Health Foundation. Phase two is to build the playground with the assistance of Trails & Parks, a 501(c)(3) organization fully funded by the Health Foundation. Please see photos attached for the proposed playground pending acceptance from the neighborhood. The requested funds will be used to study and obtain neighborhood acceptance. The study is an integral step toward creating real positive change for the community.

Wasilla Sunrise Rotary will engage a professional as recommended by the Health Foundation to survey the needs and interest of the neighborhood in the construction of the playground. This is the first step in the planning process before the actual construction of the playground by members of the Club and the community members. Club members are fully supportive of assisting the children in this neighborhood and look forward to being actively involved in the project and it's planning. Club members will participate in the planning process and in the actual construction of the playground over several weeks in the summer months.

A plaque notating the financial and community donors will be placed at the playground site similar to what was placed at the Wasilla Lake Newcomb Park that Wasilla Sunrise Rotary also built.
