The group of parents who had set out to try to raise funds for a Spray Park for Kimberley has given up their quest after finding it difficult to raise the amount necessary to establish a Spray Park and also find available land on which to construct it.

The Spray Park committee has now disbanded and on Wednesday May 1, they turned over the funds raised to date to the Kimberley Rotary Club.

These funds will go toward improvements at Rotary Children’s Park and Rotary has been challenged to try to incorporate some water features at Rotary Park.

Rotary Park was first built in 1945 on land purchased by the Club.  The land and park was turned over to the City of Kimberley years ago but the Rotary Club, with ongoing support from the citizens of Kimberley, continues to work on trying to keep the Park up to date and functional for the entire community.  Watch for some new swings to be installed this summer.
