The Lafayette Rotary Club recently made a $5,000 donation to support the construction of an All Access Playground in the Moraga Commons Park.
The Lamorinda All-Access playground is being designed to fill the need for outdoor recreational opportunities for children throughout Contra Costa County who have physical or developmental disabilities, allowing them to play side-by-side with family members or friends who might not have any disabilities. The plan calls for 24 pieces of equipment that will focus on sensory stimulation including tactile, visual, auditory skills and provide safe access for those who have mobility issues.
The development of the playground is being headed by the Moraga Rotary Club and is being supported by the Town of Moraga. "There is a population of over 100,000 residents that have been underserved in outdoor recreational experiences and this playground will open up an opportunity for all children to develop physical, cognitive, sensory and social skills," according to Kevin Reneau, the president of Moraga Rotary.
"We are delighted to be an early supporter of this playground and are excited about the impact it can make in the communities surrounding Lamorinda" said Norma Evans, the president of Lafayette Rotary. The playground will cost approximately $450,000 to build and individuals or organizations can direct inquiries about support to Reneau at
Lafayette Rotary meets at 12:15 p.m. on Thursdays at Oakwood Athletic Club and visitors are welcome to join them for lunch. You can get additional information about Lafayette Rotary at
