The heavy snowfall the past two weeks has made the Peninsula State Park a popular destination. Steve Strucely of the Friends of Peninsula State Park says a recent candlelight ski event drew over 600 people. That number of cross-country skiers was the highest of any outing in the last several years, according to Strucely. He says the trails remain ideal for outdoor enthusiasts.
Strucely adds other activities at Peninsula State Park include feeding the chickadees at the nature center. He says the park is currently working on updating the nature center’s diorama map of the area. Peninsula State Park is located in Fish Creek and is open to the public year round with a park sticker.
