Since 2011, the Bellevue Rotary Club has been raising money, making connections and generally doing whatever it could to make the Inspiration Playground a reality. On Tuesday, June 21, ground broke on the all-inclusive park with a check from Rotary for $3,351,861 to get the project well on the way to completion.
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!
