Dedication at Algoma's Christmas Tree Ship Park

Christmas has come early to a park near the Algoma marina. There was a dedication Thursday at Christmas Ship Tree Park, named for the booming commodity trade in the 1800's. Algoma Parks and Rec Director Sara Robertson talks about all of the groups who made the park possible.


The park provides a great view of the iconic Algoma Pierhead Lighthouse. Over 50 ships dedicated solely to carrying Christmas trees to Milwaukee and Chicago passed by the point over the years. A well-known captain of one of the Christmas tree ships was born in the city of Algoma as well. The renovations honor that heritage.
