Rotary Club of Kirkland volunteers assisted the Kirkland Parks Department in constructing a children’s playground at Rose Hill Meadows Park recently.

Last year, the City of Kirkland cut the Parks’ budget. Club members decided on this project and on a rainy Saturday, joined by staff from the Parks Department, completed a significant portion of the playground.

The Rotary Club of Kirkland has participated in several park projects throughout the city, including the picnic shelter at Everest Park. Rotarian J. Donald Dicks said, “I have always enjoyed working outdoors and helping clean up some of our parks so thought that this would be a good way for our Rotary Club to continue to be involved with our community.”
