The Rotary Club of Savannah will dedicate and hold the ribbon cutting on an all accessible playground in Forsyth Park on Monday, December 8 at 12:40 p.m.
The $342,000 park was funded by the club through internal sponsorship, a grant from the Alan S. Gaynor Fund and AMBUCS, the Herb Traub Fund and support from the City of Savannah and Chatham County. It will be accessible to all children, including those who have wheelchair limitations and other specialized conditions. The design includes nine slides, 16 climbers, and eight swings. The equipment can support a capacity up to 300 children. The ground will be covered with rubber matting and mulch.
“The Rotary Club of Savannah is excited to be able to provide this one-of-a-kind playground to our region,” said club President Holden Hayes. “This donation supports the Rotary Club’s motto – service above self, and is one of the almost countless ways this club and Rotary clubs worldwide, support our communities.”
