While enjoying time in R Park this hot summer, you have no doubt noticed the critical need for shade there! After most of the mature trees had to be removed due to Emerald Ash borer, the city replanted 27 new trees. But it will be a long time before they provide the necessary shade for comfort in R Park.
Citizens Fundraising Initiative for R Park has launched a “Seeking Shade in R Park” campaign designed to help the City raise money to build a medium-sized picnic shelter in R Park. Citizens have raised $25,000 toward the estimated $150,000 cost of the shelter, but now they need other citizens and businesses to join them in making this R Park shelter a reality.
All tax deductible donations are welcomed and appreciated, great or small. Make your check payable to “Roeland Park Community Foundation,” memo on check “R Park Shelter” and mail to Roeland Park City Hall, 4600 W. 51st Street, Roeland Park, KS 66205 OR bring your credit card in person to City Hall.
Help move us one step closer to making R Park, at 5535 Juniper, a destination spot for the comfort, enjoyment and well-being of the community. Please give your gift now to the “Seeking Shade in R Park” shelter campaign. The entire City thanks you!
