The Rotary Club of Bluffton celebrated the completion of Phase II of the Field of Dreams project with a Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting on Saturday, May 4th. The celebration officially opened the new covered pavilion and restrooms with an art wall feature. Immediately following the Ribbon-Cutting, a special “Art with Amiri” event was held for children to share ideas and help local artist Amiri Farris with a mural for the Field of Dreams Pavilion.
The Bluffton Community Center and Field of Dreams park were envisioned and built by the Rotary Club of Bluffton 19 years ago when Rotary members first saw a need for a community center and park in our growing town. The Rotary Club of Bluffton took on a multi-year, multi-phase park improvement project for Field of Dreams at Oscar Frazier Park 3 ½ years ago. With help from grants, the Town of Bluffton, the Bluffton Rotary Club, the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class of 2018, businesses and individuals, Phase I of the Field of Dreams park improvement project was completed in the spring of 2018 and opened a newly renovated playground. The great influx of children using the playground made Phase II, the construction of the covered pavilion with restrooms a much needed addition. The pavilion was funded through grants, a “Music for the Park” fund-raiser and help from many partners and sponsors.
