Rosemont Park Update
Meg Milner reports that “The Rotary Club of Nelson Daybreak is delighted to report that on behalf of the City and citizens of Nelson, we have successfully fundraised over $255,000.00 for the Rosemont (Art Gibbons) Park project.
The playground, installed in 2019 has a new slide, awaiting landscaping. Planning is in final stages for wheelchair-accessible walkways around the playground and through the forest. New benches and accessible picnic tables will invite folks to take a quiet moment along the walkways. A new shade shelter is planned to allow parents and families to rest safely while supervising their children. Rotary Daybreakers will be helping the City in maintaining the playground by spreading the bark mulch under the equipment and weed eating the perimeter.
This project has become a reality through the amazing generosity of the numerous donors through grants, cash donations and/or ‘in kind’ services. Every donor will be acknowledged on ‘story board’ signage located by the playground. It takes a community to raise our children and support our families and we are proud to be of service.”
