Will Rogers Park: City applies for revitalization grants

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Funding will come from seed money from past grants that has been dedicated for city trails. The trail will loop around the entire park and tie into the existing sidewalk that goes up to Rogers State University, Kays said.
Both grants will be awarded by July 1, he added. If received, construction on the projects is planned for 2015.
Other projects currently in the works for Will Rogers Park include a Master Gardeners teaching garden and a memorial dedicated to veterans, firefighters and police officers who have served the community. The master plan also calls for a picnic gazebo, outdoor fitness equipment, amphitheater and plaza, as well as other amenities.
“The Will Rogers Park is one of the oldest parks in the city. It was nice to see the crowds back with the opening of the splash pad,” Kays said. “It will be a very nice project when it’s totally completed, something that will benefit all of Claremore.”
Ongoing park fundraisers include the sale of bricks and pavers, available for $25 and $100, to be used in the walkways. Individuals and businesses can also purchase sponsorships to help defray costs of benches and picnic tables.  For more information, call  Campbell at (918) 381-4482 or email her at willrogersparkproject@gmail.com.
