Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Cheyenne, WY

Total Budget: $195,201

Area of Focus: Economic and community development

Activity Type: Community Development: Construction/Renovation

Summary: Renovation of Lincoln Park playground in South Cheyenne will provide a safer and ADA compliant play space serving low-income residents.


The removal of an old playground, originally installed in the 1970s, and installation of the new playground in Lincoln Park will provide residents of the neighborhood with an amenity that allows for opportunities for healthier lifestyls, and improved overall quality of life for children and families. Lincoln Park is in a neighborhood park serving residents and a neighborhood identified as LMI (low- to moderate-income), where 51% of households are identified as LMI, and the average income is 55.05% of the HUD median income; 990 people live in the immediate block and 4,415 live in the census track that constitutes this neighborhood. Rotary Club of Cheyenne will participate in the project with the City of Cheyenne to renovate this playground in the fall of 2019, with the City providing the project administration and management, demolition, and contracting. The Rotary Club will assist not only with funding, but also with manpower for site preparation and possibly help with demolition if possible, as well as hosting of a neighborhood "grand opening" celebration. Total project budget is $199,201, with additional funding provided through a CDBG Grant of $191,201. The City will proceed with this project with their available funding; Rotary participation allows for expanded playground equipment which further improves the use and enjoyment by children and families.
