The May Park is close to senior, disabled, low-income and young-family housing. It is the perfect setting for an innovative park design to encourage quiet enjoyment of the natural setting for our diverse community. The Wellness Garden is designed to ensure and enhance accessibility for an inclusion of older adults and people of all ages and abilities. It inclues native plants, an exercise meadow, walking paths, exercise stations, picnic area, shelters, fencing, a labyrinth, and water features. The estimated total cost is $500,000.00. It is a project in partnership with "Age Friendly Jackson Hole", Y2 Consultants, Leeds Landscape Architecture, and Teton botanical Garden, the Community Foundation, Senior Center, and Teton County Parks and Recreation Department. Rotary JH Breakfast has donated $1k and seeks a $1k match to assist "Age Friendly Jackson Hole" to obtain pamphlets, bulletin boards, marketing materials, presentation space, and landscaping/benches to encourage additional community support in this overall park project.
The money supplied by Rotary and this Grant will be used for the promotional materials, posters, signage, banners, booths, and brochures. Rotarians will donate 10 hours manning informational booths to raise financial support community-wide for May Park. Rotary will also install 2 benches in the park, donate the concrete materials, and provide the installation.
