Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Purchase and installation of a new ADA accessible 'Ruby Fall' playground element within Brown Park, McCall


The existing Brown Park playground equipment installed with donations and volunteer help nearly 30 years ago, now does not meet ADA accessibility or safety standards, and can no longer be safely maintained. The need for Brown Park playground improvements was first identified as a priority by community members during the creation of the McCall Parks and Recreation Master Plan and confirmed by a 2017 online and social media effort to gain public input into the design and priorities for Brown park. The 3rd Grade Class at Barbara Morgan Elementary helped select the preferred new playground design which includes opportunities for interactive play like those provided by the Ruby Falls playground component.

The Ruby Falls play element will provide youth and families with a unique and educational experience and positively contribute to the greater shoreline, pathway and access improvements to Brown Park. In addition it will be ADA compliant and will help children learn about hydrology by demonstrating changes to water flow through a play element.

Removal of the existing failing playground equipment will occur as soon as the snow allows in spring/summer 2021 with grading and site work to follow in summer months. All playground equipment, including the Ruby Falls play element will be installed fall 2021.

The project funds will be used to assist in the purchase of the Ruby Falls Play Element. See budget information. Rotarians will participate in the in-kind work with the Parks Department in completing site prep and installation.

Club projects are compiled by D5400 into a block grant application to The Rotary Foundation that we submit around the 1st of July. We will not hear back from TRF for several weeks if our grant is approved. Be sure to confirm with the City of McCall that the equipment to be purchased with this grant, if approved, cannot be ordered until after the grant is approved. It is a TRF restriction that grant recipients can't be reimbursed for expenses incurred prior to the approval of a grant. If the city has already ordered the equipment or can't wait till your hear about the approval of your grant, your club may wish to choose another project.

To be considered, a club's application for a grant will need to have the signatures of both the primary contact person (Eliza) and the 2021-22 club president. On the administration side of the History Log page of the grant, please add the name and email address of your incoming president to the distribution list. Thank you!

This project is in progress. The club funds were issued as a deposit for the play equipment and the equipment will be purchased once the district funds are issued. I will upload a copy of the club check in the coming weeks and some photos of the area where the play equipment will be installed.
