The park, formerly known as City Park, is located just west of downtown and includes the Rotary Band Shell, formerly known as the Kiwanis Band Shell. The check was presented by West Shore Bank executives during the Rotary’s weekly meeting at the Ludington Area Center for the Arts.

“This gift is yet another example of the West Shore Bank’s commitment to our community,” the Rotary Club’s Facebook page stated. “Rotary Park is undergoing a terrific makeover. There will be new and attractive and safe restrooms, two new picnic gazebos, new and more efficient electrical systems throughout the park, more graceful landscaping. One of the more visible additions to look of the park will be the bronze water sculpture feature in the fountain area.”

“This generous donation will go a long way toward making our $450,000 goal for this project a reality,” said James Jensen, Rotary Club of Ludington treasurer. “This project could not take place if it were not for the financial support of The Community Foundation of Mason County, a grant from Rotary International District 6290, and support of many area businesses, corporations, and individuals.”

Rotary Club of Ludington is short of its goal and, according to club officers, is eager to accept further donations. Heirloom Construction is the contractor for the project and they are moving ahead and are on time to complete renovations in the next few weeks in advance of the May 28 dedication ceremony for Rotary Park.
