100thAnniversary Legacy Project
After a public request for proposals for a Rotary Club of Welland Legacy Project in 2018, the Club has partnered with the City of Welland to develop a Rotary Club of Welland Park. A MOU between the two parties was executed in March 2019.
The Club has committed to provide a $100,000 contribution to the City, over a period of up to 5 years commencing in 2020. This contribution will be used by the City for the development of what is to be referred to as The Rotary Club of Welland Park, located on the west side of the Recreational Waterway, south of Lincoln Street. The City can use these funds to leverage additional funding opportunities.
The Club will have major signage at the entrance to the park as well as two (2) street-side signs at Lincoln Street. As well, there will be a Rotary area of reflection constructed along the waterway just south of what is now referred to as the dock area. The remainder of the money can be used by the City for other related improvements such as relocating the boat rental facility to this area, to be opened in 2020.
Partially developed with docks, a new skateboard park, and bicycle/walk paths, this park is envisioned to be a multi-faceted recreational site where we will be able to reflect Rotary’s values and mission. This contribution toward the creation of the Rotary Club of Welland Park builds on the momentum generated to create a public space and an interregional destination designed to bring more families and individuals to our recreational waterway. 
The Rotary Club of Welland has embarked on a Sponsorship campaign to raise $100,000 for this 100thAnniversary Legacy Project over a three-year period. Many companies and individuals have partnered with the Club in this endeavor.
