The City of Bellevue is looking to replace its nearly 30-year-old Cole Park playground equipment. As most people are aware, Cole Park lies in the heart of Bellevue and is a very active public park. The park hosts many events throughout the year including Bellevue Community School District and Marquette Catholic’s baseball/softball programs, Bellevue Braves' games, Bellevue Youth Soccer and Baseball/Softball, and many community events including but not limited to Heritage Days, Easter Egg Hunt, Reunion on the River, etc.
In May 2017, a Playground Committee Group was formed to help organize fundraisers, search for grants, research equipment ideas, and overall help keep the project moving. Some of the group’s efforts included helping with the Bellevue Community Club’s annual Reunion on the River, Bender’s Food Stand, Jackson County Pro Rodeo 50/50 raffle, donation tables at local events, Schwan’s Cares, a shopping bus trip in November to Woodfield Mall, can drive, golf best shot, and applying for numerous grants.
If you would like to donate, please fill out this form and send in to City Hall or send to Abbey.
