Second phase underway for La Salle Rotary Park

Posted by wlpo on July 31, 2014

Take a drive to La Salle Rotary Park and you will see a ball getting kicked around the soccer field and children enjoying the playground.

A baseball field, more walking paths and parking are coming soon.  The second phase of the park construction must be completed by the year’s end according to Mayor Jeff Grove.   That’s also when the city will need to pay for phase two.

A state grant is paying for up to half of the cost.  The match money is coming from donations to the park foundation though the fundraising goal hasn’t yet been met.

Most recently an anonymous donor said they are donating a U.S. flag,  state flag and Rotary flag plus the flagpoles.  You’ll see the flags when you enter the park.

Eureka Savings Bank has given $25,000 for a shelter and naming rights.   Toedter Oil is also giving $10, 000 for a scoreboard and naming rights.
