Lisa S. Chase, grant writer for the City of Dover, recently addressed the Dover Colonial Rotary Club, seeking support from the area Rotary Clubs to construct an assessable playground at the Dover Park site.
Mrs. Chase began by indicating that there are presently two such accessible playgrounds in Delaware in Wilmington and Milford. A third is planned for Kent County at the Dover Park off White Oak Road. The Dover Park Recreation Project seeks to design and construct a spray and splash pad, an accessible playground, and a supporting park building in Dover for the city’s residents and the general public.
Funds for both the Wilmington and the Milford accessible playgrounds were raised via grants, support from the area Rotary Clubs and in-kind donations from other groups. Mrs. Chase hopes that the Kent County Rotary Clubs will join forces and assist in making this a reality. The estimated cost for the entire project is around $500,000.
