ROTARY CLUB DONATION JUMP-STARTS ACCESSIBLE NEW PARK

Sokol Park

The Rotary Club of Tuscaloosa handed out a few special donations to different organizations around the Druid City on Thursday morning. Tuscaloosa County’s Parks and Recreation Authority received a check from the club to help it complete the first phase goal of its highly anticipated all accessible new park.

“We plan to build an all-inclusive playground at Sokol Park,” PARA’s Director of Development Caroline Lasseter said. “This playground will be for all children alike. We will have wheelchair ramps, things for kids with autism, musical instruments. Even parents, grandparents, maybe veterans that have a disability can all go out with their children and play.”

Due to the donation from the Rotary Club, Lasseter believes that the playground park could be the largest in the state once it’s complete. One of the park’s pavilions will bear the Rotary Club’s name.
