Inspiration Playground in the News
Rotary hits funding milestone for Inspiration Playground

Washington Rep. Cyrus Habib lost his sight when he was eight years old while attending Somerset Elementary in Bellevue. As a child, he said he wanted to play on the jungle gym as much as any 8-year-old.
“They kept me by the side of the school with the recess lady and the teachers while the rest of the kids played,” he said during Tuesday’s Rotary Club of Bellevue luncheon. Habib’s mom took him to the principal, where she told the administrator she would teach him how to navigate the playground. “She said, ‘I can fix a broken arm. I can never fix a broken spirit.’”
Inspiration Playground PLAY FOR ALL Campaign
The Rotary Club of Bellevue has partnered with the City of Bellevue to help fund and build a truly inclusive outdoor play environment at the Bellevue Downtown Park. The Inspiration Playground is envisioned as a destination recreational resource for Bellevue, the greater Eastside and all of King County. It will have a universally accessible design and feature sensory-rich play experiences and equipment suitable for all ages and abilities. The play spaces will accommodate the needs of all children — those who are typically developing, as well as those with physical, cognitive, or sensory disabilities.
