Rotaract Club of Evansville wanted to do something for the youngest members in our community. Remodeling the playground at Ark seemed like the perfect project for our club to embark on to create a fun and imaginative place to just be a kid. Every child, no matter their background deserves a decent, fun, and safe place to play.

Rotaract, sponsored by Rotary International, renovated Ark’s preschool playground into a natural play space. The playground now includes a tricycle path, green space, racing hill slide, sandbox, climbing boulder, new trees and shrubs, privacy fence and other natural elements.
“This is a major improvement for Ark’s children, and we are so fortunate that Rotaract chose to sponsor this project,” said Executive Director, Angie Richards Cooley. “Our children played on a fenced-in parking lot for too long. We wouldn’t have been able to make this renovation happen without Rotaract.”
This playground transformation is amazing! Thanks to Rotaract, Mead Johnson Nutrition, Bowen Engineering and many others, our children have a safe, fun, imagination-inspiring place to play.
Rotaract’s motto, “Service Above Self” exemplifies the humanitarian spirit of nearly 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide. Rotaract is a network of young business, professional and community leaders who volunteer our time and talents to serve the community.
