Fuller All Abilities Park
We want all children of all ages and abilities to feel the utter exhilaration of having fun on a playground. The Rotary Club of Clackamas and Happy Valley are committed to creating a safe place for kids of all abilities to play and have fun.
Along with community partners and GameTime Inc., we hope to make this park possible for our community.
Children with disabilities often cannot play on a standard playground and therefore cannot take advantage of the amazing benefits that play provides. An all abilities playground is a space that provides inclusive play opportunity for all children of all ages and abilities. Our playground will be designed to promote the healthy development of all children’s physical, cognitive and sensory abilities. Our park will give all children in Happy Valley the chance to play, grow and learn side by side.
The Clackamas Rotary Foundation strives to support our community in greater Northwest Clackamas County. Our Club and Foundation have been a key player in the county for many years. We have built a playground and outside learning structure at two of our local elementary schools and given thousands of dollars in scholarships. The Foundation has been a constant supporter of the Clackamas Service Center and Clackamas Community College. We are fortunate to have great community support of people like the Fuller family. Their assistance helped to get us started on this adventure. We must also thank the Rotary Club of Clackamas for their generous gift which helped get this project off the ground.
The proposed park will be located in the Southwest portion of the existing Happy Valley Park, near the covered eating area and close to the restrooms. The area can be conveniently accessed from two paths and the newly constructed ramp will allow all to use the area. The Park will provide children of all abilities and ages a place to play, imagine and explore. As every parent has learned happy kids makes for happy parents!
The goal is $84,000 to cover project costs. To date, we have received donations of just over half the proceeds we need to break ground.
Here is how you can help:
DIAMOND DONOR $10,000
This allows the donor to have their family name prominently placed so all can see.
PLATINUM DONOR $5,000
This will allow the donor to have their name prominently place don the pay structure of their choice.
GOLD DONOR $2,500
This will allow the donor to have naming rights to one of two benches that are planned for the play area.
SILVER DONOR $1,000
Every person who donates $1,000 will have their name placed on a permanent sign to be placed at the park in perpetuity.
BRONZE DONOR $125
Every donor who donates $125 will have their name placed on a special brick to be placed in the park.
FRIENDS OF THE PARK $ ________
Donors will have the knowledge that they are part of a project that will provide a playground for kids of all ages and abilities.
We sincerely appreciate any consideration you can give in helping make this dream a reality!
