It is entirely conceivable that if it were not for the Rotary Club Fort Edmonton Park would not exist.
The significance of Rotary to Fort Edmonton Park:
Samuel A. Dickson and Henry G Ward, through their enthusiasm, inspired the Fort Edmonton Park Committee of the Rotary Clubs of Edmonton, and the founding board of the Fort Edmonton Historical Foundation, which included:
John A. Beckingham, Ray Ludford, James G. MacGregor, H. Stan Ragan, Henry G. Ward, J. Newton Shorliffe, Merrill E. Wolfe
There are several plaques situated around Fort Edmonton Park that honour the contribution made by Edmonton Rotary clubs. One such plaque is at the Partner’s Gate at the entrance to the park. It is one of three that have been installed into a portion of the Donor Wall. It sits alongside another honouring the Fort Edmonton Foundation, and another honouring the City of Edmonton, paying tribute to the three entities that have been key to the development of the Park.
