Piccadilly Gala

The Piccadilly Gala is an event hosted by the Foundation in efforts to raise money for new projects for the community through the parks and recreation department . Each year, women from the community get together and have fun while raising funds for these new and exciting projects. Past Piccadilly events have supported the building of Rainbow Splash Park and is currently working on the all inclusive, Milwaukee St Park.

Upcoming & Current Projects
All Inclusive Milwaukee Street Park

Milwaukee Street Park is located  on nearly 5 acres off of Milwaukee Street. With this property we plan to add a new inclusive playground, butterfly haven, picnic shelter and more! Playgrounds are a place for laughter, friends and fun where all children and their families can play together regardless of their abilities. An inclusive playground takes away both the physical and social barriers to exclusion.

Past Projects
Rainbow Splash Park

Rainbow Splash Park opened August 13th, 2021. The park is a major renovation to the old Rainbow Swim Club pool that was partially funding by the Land & Water Conservation Fund. Amenities include splash pad, benches, gazebo, concessions, cornhole, and ping pong. There is parking available West of the splash pad, and Rainbow Trail access on the East side of the park.
