Additions coming to Rotary Park in downtown Montgomery

River Region Rotary Clubs donate thousands to fund next phase of Rotary Park project

Post Date:10/09/2019 3:30 PM
MONTGOMERY – Rotary Park in downtown Montgomery will soon see improvements and increased greenspace thanks to a $12,000 donation from the Montgomery Rotary Club, Montgomery Sunrise Rotary Club and Montgomery Sunset Rotary Club  .

Coming improvements will further activate the space as a gathering place for those living, working or visiting downtown. Plans call for new picnic tables, umbrellas for shade, improved signage, streetscape enhancements providing for permanent food truck parking and more. City officials anticipate a four to five month timeline for the completion of the additions.

Opened in September 2017, Rotary Park inhabits an existing greenspace adjacent to the parking deck at Montgomery City Hall at the corner of Coosa and Bibb Streets. Development officials chose the site due to its central location, size, treescape and underutilization. The park preserves the original fountain and mature flowering trees. Pet and Playground Products, a national company based in the River Region and owned by Montgomery resident Robert Price, provided all fencing, equipment and pet agility amenities for the dog park portion of Rotary Park that attracts a steady influx of pet owners living in downtown Montgomery.Rotary Check Presentation for Park Improvement
