Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Luverne, MN

Total Budget: $3,967

Area of Focus: Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: Construction/Renovation

Summary: Rotary Park Benches, picnic tables and signage

Rotary Park was established by the Luverne Rotary Club in 2015. It is located near the off ramp of Interstate 90 and offers travelers, visitors and local residents a space to enjoy the outdoors, exercise their dog in our controlled dog park and rest for the moment. Since its initial opening we have added a shelter covering and a children's outdoor play area. Each year new flowers are planted and kept up with the help of our club. It also displays the Rotary Wheel as part of the sidewalk area bringing some basic Rotary information to visitors. A new section of local bike path now crosses with this park bringing a new set of individuals to our park to enjoy the amenities. It has added beauty and green space to an otherwise industrial area of our community. That being said we feel we have a few last details to finish to really make it complete. The addition of 2 round picnic tables seating 8 each and 1 ADA compliant rectangle table with wheelchair access for two chairs is on the wish list for this park. A classic park bench customized with Luverne Rotary Club will draw attention to our club's presence. These tables and benches would be ordered in blue to add color and align with the colors of Rotary. They will also compliment the Rotary Flag that flies in the park along with an American Flag. Finally we need better signage alerting visitors of the area where the dog run is located so when they pull off to fuel their cars they can see the option for pet exercise. I have included the suggested cost of our wish list. Our Rotary Club will continue to promote and host community activities at the park. The new connection to the bike path will open new opportunities for us. We also share in the clean up and maintenance of the park in partnership with the city of Luverne. As a club we have had many compliments by local residents about the parks value to the community. If awarded a grant we would order the desired items immediately for use. Outdoor seating and options are at a prime right now with the current Covid 19 situation. We thank you for your consideration.
