Bemidji Rotarians and local government officials broke ground for the $440,000 project on May 19. Building of the playground took place the weekend of June 16-19th and the playground was opened to the public in July. The Bemidji Rotary Club has committed to raising funds, with rallied support from the community, to support the construction of this universally accessible playground for all ages and abilities to enjoy at the Bemidji waterfront. An official Grand-Opening will take place on September 17th during the Worldwide Day of Play. 

Show your support! There are still a few funds left to raise to complete this project initiative. Invite a Rotarian to present to a group or organization. Host a fundraiser or take-up a collection in honor of the playground. For more information, please feel welcome to contact Paul Diehl at (218) 230-0502 or Tanya Hasbargen at (218) 556-5699.
