Berkley , MI – May 20 , 2022
– Berkley Parks & Recreation has received a donation in the amount of $5 , 000 for their inclusive park fundraiser from Wayne Wudyka , owner of Huntington Cleaners , Wesch Cleaners , and Certified Restoration Drycleaning Network ( CRDN ) .
Jaycee Park , a 2 . 7 - acre park located between Bacon and Phillips , serves not only Berkley residents , but it is a short distance from the city of Royal Oak , along with other neighboring cities , including Southfield , Oak Park , Beverly Hills , and Huntington Woods , all less than five minutes away .
“With the support of long - time business members like Wayne Wudyka , we will continue to have the ability to build parks that are vibrant and significant location spaces for more community enjoyment , socialization , healthy activities , and imaginative fun , ” said Theresa McArleton , Parks & Recreation Director .
This premier recreation spot is set to become an all - inclusive playground and playscape that will go above the required ADA accessibility requirements to meet a variety of needs and interests . The space will be sensory - rich and enable children to develop physically , socially , and emotionally . It will also allow adults of varying ages and abilities to actively engage with children in their care . The project includes updates to pathways , increased accessibility , and a state - of - the - art , universally accessible playscape .
“Berkley is a destination city for families , and that’s largely due to the forward - thinking efforts by our mayor , city council , and standing boards , commissions , and advisory committees to foster an inclusive , community - focused environment that citizens of all ages can enjoy . The upgrades planned for our town’s Jaycee Park are a wonderful step toward cementing these ideals for the future , ” added Wudyka .
Thanks to donations like this , the City was able to exceed its crowdfunding goal of $50 , 000 and will win a matching grant with funds made possible by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s ( MEDC ) Public Spaces Community Places program .
Public Spaces Community Places
is a collaborative effort of the MEDC , the Michigan Municipal League , and Patronicity , in which local residents can use crowdfunding to be part of the development of strategic projects in their communities and be backed with a matching grant from MEDC .
