Belview Palisades Park Fundraiser
A group of local neighbors from Belview Palisades recently started researching the possibility of developing a 10-acre spread of land into a neighborhood park. Upon consulting the City of Great Falls, they learned the land had already been set aside for exactly that purpose. To turn their dream of a park complete with playground equipment, a picnic pavilion, basketball courts and walking trails into reality, the group needed to raise $90,000. So, the neighborhood team started working.
The Belview Park Fund has generated $10,200 as a result of neighborhood contributions and a successful garage sale held over the Memorial Day Weekend. On Sunday, July 15 an outdoor music concert and BBQ will be held to continue the fundraising momentum.
The outdoor event will be held at the site of the Belview Palisades Park, located south of Centennial Drive, adjacent to Evergreen Drive, and will feature music by The Clumsy Lovers. Food, refreshments and games for the children will also be available.
“We all know that parks add to the physical and aesthetic quality of our neighborhoods,” commented Lori Purpura, one of the volunteers working on the Belview Palisades Park Project, “but we also want a place that fosters a positive sense of community among the residents who live here.”
The Benefit for Belview Palisades Park will be held on July 15 from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Cost is $5 per individual or $20 for a family of four. All are invited to attend. For more information or to make a donation to the Belview Park Fund, please call 761-5440.
This should be pretty cool – the Clumsy Lovers are a regional band with a pretty broad following, so it’s definitely worth the $5 admission!
