The Atmore Rotary Club recently received a $1,500 grant award from the Atmore Community Foundation, an affiliate of The Community Foundation of South Alabama, to assist with the purchase of a shade covering for the playground at the Atmore Community Splash Pad at Heritage Park.

The project, a public-private partnership between several civic organizations and businesses, began in July 2017. After donations were raised, the splash pad began construction in 2018.

The pad is 2,000 square feet, and has a covered seating area for parents.
