Rotary Clubs, volunteers conduct annual cleanup of Rotary Park


Volunteers for the cleanup came from all over the community.

The Rotary Park at Suntree is ready for summer. Bushes and trees are trimmed, beds have been weeded and the park looks immaculate. Located along the Indian River on U.S. Highway 1, the 10.36-acre park features a boardwalk, picnic tables, a playground and a large pavilion.

“We have a cleanup at the park once a year,” said Alan Frisher, a member of the Rotary Club of Suntree. “We trimmed, chopped, pruned and cleaned.”

Rotary Club members were assisted by Keep Brevard Beautiful and student volunteers as they worked to spruce up the park on May 13. East Coast Paper Stock Inc. donated dumpsters.

“East Coast Paper Stock delivered and picked up a 30-yard trash bin for free,” said Frisher. “We are very thankful to them.” The trash bin were needed to hold the piles of tree and shrub trimmings, debris, and trash that Rotarians and other volunteers gathered.

The park is known for its shorebirds, migratory ducks and other water birds. A fishing pier offers an expansive view of the Indian River and an opportunity to view wildlife.

The Rotary Club of Suntree members are involved in meaningful projects throughout the community. Rotary Club of Suntree meetings are held from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. every Friday at the Suntree Country Club.
