On October 3, 2013, the Rotary Club of Sudbury, Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers, their community partners and the public celebrated the grand opening of the latest addition to Rotary Park – a new pedestrian bridge that connects the newly installed soccer fields to the Barrydowne Arena. This new bridge is the result of a proud partnership between the two Rotary Clubs, Cambrian College’s Welding and Fabrication Program, Lopes Mechanical, JL Richards and Tulloch Engineering.
Rotary Park is a joint project between the Adanac Park Steering Committee and Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Sudbury and the Rotary Club of Sudbury Sunrisers. The idea of a park was first conceived in the late 90s as a community project to commemorate the Rotary of Sudbury's 75th anniversary.
The park is 200 acres in size, centrally located and includes part of the Junction Creek Waterway Park and connects New Sudbury to Downtown. Made up of over 4 kilometres of trails, Rotary Park boasts flower gardens, rest stops a boardwalk, bridge, stairs and lookout. Entry to the park is at the Adanac Ski Hill entrance.
Rotary is a global humanitarian organization with more than 1.2 million members in 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Rotary members are men and women who are business, professional and community leaders with a shared commitment to make the world a better place through humanitarian service. Rotary’s top priority is the global eradication of polio.
