The Capital Region Rotary club is raising funds for the Capital Region Land Bank to help purchase and install playground equipment for Tribute Park in Schenectady, for children and families to enjoy throughout the summer. Our goal is to raise $15,000.
Tribute Park was designed to be a vibrant and flexible neighborhood park that serves residents of all ages and abilities. The park is centrally located, serving the Eastern Avenue neighborhood, located at 868 Eastern Ave. Formerly three adjacent residential properties, the site was established by the Capital Region Land Bank through acquisition and then demolition of the blighted structures. The vacant land was then set aside with the goal of providing the Eastern Avenue neighborhood with much needed green space as well as providing an additional entrance into Vale Park. The site itself is just under half an acre and offers an open and flat canvas for creating a safe, attractive and dynamic community park. The Splash pad was recently installed and now we are raising money for playground equipment to enhance the enjoyment of all its visitors.
On August 2, the daily operations of Tribute Park were turned over to the City of Schenectady and were acknowledged at a Ribbon cutting. Have a look at the article: “New park not done, but already fun”
Please join us on September 26th to raise funds for this great cause! There will be a 50/50 and raffles the day of the event.
