City Partners with Kiwanis and Foundation to Raise Funds for Starin Park Playground Equipment

Kiwanis We Go Round Press Release

Whitewater, Wis. October 28, 2020- The City of Whitewater is excited to partner with the Kiwanis Club and the Whitewater Community Foundation to give residents a way to raise money for a new piece of playground equipment in Starin Park. 


The new piece of equipment is called a We-Go-Round, which is a merry-go-round designed to allow wheeled mobility devices to fit in comfortably so all children can enjoy the experience. The We-Go-Round has a center post wheel for all children to use and create the spinning motion from inside and outside. 


The We-Go-Round encourages social play for all children as both riders and pushers while they cooperate to make this a fun experience for all. The children pushing work on motor planning and coordination through engagement of their muscles and joints. 


Kids can use motor skills of balance, along with core, lower and upper body strength. They will also use their cognitive skills for problem solving. This new equipment will bring imaginative play and the ability for all kids to socialize, no matter their degree of mobility. 


“A huge thank you goes to the Kiwanis Club for wanting to add this fun piece of equipment to Starin Park,” said Eric Boettcher, Parks and Recreation Director. “This new We-Go-Round will be a great addition allowing all children to participate and enjoy the playground. That is exactly what a playground should be, a place for everyone to enjoy their experience.”


The Whitewater Community Foundation has set up a fund for the project and donations can now be made.
