Kewaunee County Thanks Friends Groups & Donors for Investing in Parks System

KEWAUNEE, WI – Kewaunee County is pleased that 2018 is shaping up to be a good year for parks improvements overseen by the Promotions & Recreation Department.

Big projects that are just getting started include the installation of a tow rope system at the Winter Park beginner’s ski hill (pictured) and the construction of a storage building thanks to Winter Park Association.  Meanwhile, a new storage building (pictured) put up at Ryan Park will double as a concession stand for the Kewaunee County Youth Soccer Association.

As for the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County, the group is looking to upgrade the current pheasant exhibit as well as the deer stable at Bruemmer Park Zoo, before beginning its master plan.  This follows the recent completion of the bobcat exhibit and installation of “Melvin” the 20-foot tall metal giraffe sculpture.  And, the Ahnapee State Trail is being graded to level the surface for silent sports enthusiasts.  The first portion scheduled to be completed connects the City of Kewaunee to the Village of Luxemburg.

“We have more traffic in our parks, which gives us the incentive to keep improving,” says Dave Myers, Director of Kewaunee County Promotions & Recreation Department.  “We greatly appreciate the support of our donors as well as our friends groups for their generosity and time as they continue to see the value of investing in our parks.”

If you or anyone you know, would like to join a friends group or make a donation, contact the Promotion & Recreation Office at (920) 388-0444 for more information.
