The Bothell Parks and Recreation Foundation has received its non-profit 501(c)3 designation. Attaining a 501(c)3 designation paves the way for potential donors and grants to raise funds for parks and recreation.
How you can get involved
Are you interested in serving on the foundation board of directors?
The level of success for the foundation will largely be determined by the community interest and the commitment from the board members. Although this effort was initiated by City of Bothell Parks and Recreation staff, ultimately the foundation will be a stand-alone operation working in conjunction with the City of Bothell Parks and Recreation Department to promote and enhance parks and recreation services in Bothell.
Contact John Keates for more information or to express your interest.
The City Parks and Recreation Department is facing both exciting and challenging times. Examples include:
the upcoming development of 1st Lt Nicholas Madrazo Park
Master Planning for the North Creek Forest
the possible acquisition of the Wayne Golf Course and the Shelton View Woods
renovating the Park at Bothell Landing
sustaining and developing recreation programs and special events, and
sustaining parks maintenance levels of service.
We’re hoping the Bothell Parks and Recreation Foundation can be a large contributor to the future success of parks and recreation in Bothell.
