CURRENT BELLEVUE ROTARY PROJECTS
Inspiration Playground News
BRC Inspiration Project Receives $1.5 Million from State!
The Bellevue Rotary Inspiration Playground & Sensory Gardens project received a $1M Capital Grant from the Washington State Legislature AND a $500,000 Parks and Recreation Grant from the State. This puts us close to $4M in funds raised toward this $5M-5.5M project and will allow us to prepare for groundbreaking in the spring of 2016.
We owe a huge “vote” of thanks to Senators Litzow and Habib and Representatives Senn, Clibborn, Hunter, and McBride! Special thanks also to Dan McDonald, Erin Dziedzic, and our entire BRC Inspiration Park Committee.
We’re in the home-stretch now. Let’s turn this “dream” into a ‘”reality” for children with and without disabilities in our region!
Seahawks Make Donation to Support Inspiration Playground in Bellevue
Bellevue Rotary Press Release
Mar 9, 2015
The Rotary Club of Bellevue is pleased to announce a $20,000 donation was received from the Seattle Seahawks for the purchase of a SwayFun Glider, to be installed at the Inspiration Playground project in Bellevue Downtown Park. The SwayFun Glider is a wheelchair accessible swing that includes benches for other passengers. The Rotary Club of Bellevue will ensure the swing features authentic Seahawks colors. The donation is part of the Seahawks PLAY 60 program, a league wide effort to fight childhood obesity by encouraging youth and families to be active for at least 60 minutes a day.
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.
