Rotary Club breaking ground on downtown park

From staff reports

Construction starts next week on a downtown park funded by the Rotary Club of Downtown Sioux Falls.

Rotary Centennial Plaza will be at the mouth of the 10th Street bridge and River Road. The plaza is designed to be a place to congregate downtown, reflecting Rotary’s business background and values of truth, fairness, goodwill and friendship.

Several pillars within the plaza will be developed in future phases.

So far, more than $50,000 in cash and in-kind resources have been contributed. The total project cost is estimated at $150,000.

“It is a pleasure for Rotary to provide this benefit for the city of Sioux Falls,” said Joel Dykstra, past president, who championed funding the plaza.

“It is part of our service organization’s purpose, to enrich other people’s lives just as sister clubs do in hundreds of Rotary communities around the world. The development of Rotary Centennial Plaza not only showcases 100 years of contributions by Rotary to Sioux Falls but also it will provide a seed and model for future development of the west bank of the Sioux River Greenway.”

A groundbreaking is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Aug. 15.
