The Friends of the Peninsula State Park just signed a contract to begin the expansion of the Nature Center. The project which has been in the making for the past several years has taken a back seat to the new Eagle Tower which will hopefully be erected sometime next year, according to Steve Strucely, business manager of the Friends of Peninsula State Park. He says hopes are to open the new nature center next spring.
The proposed plan for the Nature Center at Peninsula State Park will increase the footprint of the building to add accessible indoor restrooms, a new meeting room for up to 50 people, along with program space. The second phase would include additional parking and an outdoor observation deck, according to Strucely.
