Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Homer-Kachemak Bay

Total Budget: $3,000

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health, Community economic development

Activity Type: Community Development: Construction/Renovation

Summary: Improvements to community parks, gardens and trails where the Rotary Club of Homer-Kachemak Bay already has a presence.

The Rotary Club of Homer-Kachemak Bay has left its mark on parks, gardens and trails throughout the community - including Karen Hornaday Park in town, the Fishing Hole on the Homer Spit, the Peter Larson Memorial Garden, Poopdeck Trail, Ben Walters Park and more - but many of these projects need some sprucing up. The COVID-19 pandemic has taught us how important outdoor recreational spaces are to our mental, physical and spiritual well-being, and our club wants to give these important places some TLC so they are as inviting as possible to the community. We have checked off four areas of focus because we believe the outdoors provides a perfect setting for peace building and conflict prevention; we know the outdoors is important to disease prevention, as well as maternal and child health; and well-cared for parks and outdoor spaces are a key ingredient to community economic development, used year-round by residents and visitors.

The planned upgrades will enhance the quality of public use and reduce sketchy activities.

We will use funds from our second peony sales event and a lot of club "sweat equity" to complete as much of the work as possible. Members will clean and sand benches, construct/buy new benches, brush and open some areas for better visibility and safety, plant flowers, refurbish/replace boundary posts, and do as much as possible to make these places as lovely and user-friendly as possible.
