A group of volunteers – Julia Davis Park: Second Century Coalition – and the City of Boise are planning to build a community gathering area in Julia Davis Park. This fall, representatives of a collaborative group of area Rotary clubs presented a combined gift of $150,000 to name the project: The Rotary Grand Plaza.
At the request of Julia Davis’ great-granddaughter, Diane Davis Myklegard, and her Second Century Coalition, eight area Rotary clubs stepped up to support the plaza, which will be located between the Rose Garden and Zoo Boise.
Participating clubs include Boise, Boise Metro, Boise Southwest, Boise Sunrise, Boise Centennial, Eagle/Garden City, Boise East, and West Boise Rotary Clubs. The groups spent three years raising the funds through events and personal contributions.
The Rotary Grand Plaza is one of a number of projects intended as part of a renovation that started in 2007, when the park's Centennial Celebration attracted more than 15,000 people.
Improvements elsewhere in Julia Davis Park, accomplished or planned by the Coalition in partnership with the City of Boise, include:
Of the total philanthropic need to complete these renovations and improvements, private donors, associations and foundations have contributed nearly $800,000. The City of Boise has made more than $1.7 million worth of infrastructure and accessibility improvements, such as expanded sidewalks. The Bloch Foundation gift for the Cancer Survivors Pavilion totals $1 million for construction and a maintenance endowment.
While the combined Rotary gift to name the Rotary Grand Plaza has been completed, another $600,000 must be raised to complete the structure. The Second Century Coalition is soliciting gifts from individuals to name specific elements within the Rotary Grand Plaza.
