McLoud Kiwanis Club
There are 3 schools within a 3 block radius with over 300 homes around the center of town and the school area. The schools are connected by a sidewalk through the City Park and Walking Trails. McLoud is a small rural community and the park gives the children the area they need for physical activity outside of their backyards. There is also DISC GOLF located around the Walking Trails (partially funded by the McLoud Kiwanis in 2019). The playground will be located along 8th street near a sidewalk around the walking trails and into the housing areas. This will give the children an area to play in close to their homes and close to the schools.
What organizations will support this playground project?:
McLoud Kiwanis Club, McLoud OK and Friends of the Park
How will you ensure your playground is ready to be installed by Kiwanis One Day 2020?:
McLoud Kiwanis, Key Club, Builders Club, Friends of the Park and the city will help prepare for the installation. A ribbon cutting will be held by the City and ground breaking for the playground. A sign will be displayed in the playground showing the donation of the park by the KIWANIS CLUB of McLOUD.
Please feel free to include additional comments about your application.:
This is a great opportunity for service clubs to give back to the community. The children have very little areas to work out, play and feel free. There is a walking trail and DISC GOLF (which McLoud Kiwanis helped fund) within the walking trail area, surrounding the park.
