The city of Sturgeon Bay has a series of projects that are sure to freshen up the community starting with Graham Park. Since breaking ground nearly nine months ago, the project has had an arch placed at the entrance. Sturgeon Bay’s Mayor, David Ward thinks this will be a popular point for residents to take photos under. There also will be a fountain that will feature a sail figure. Ward suggests it is the first the city has had that he can recall.
Much of this project’s funding comes from an anonymous donor. Fundraising was also done through sales of park fixtures such as benches and also the sale of paving bricks. The hope with the project originally was that it would be completed by early May, and Ward believes it is still on pace to be completed then. The Mayor was especially excited to couple the Graham Park project with the promenade being constructed at the west waterfront. The promenade is anticipated to be constructed around the Fourth of July.
Between the projects at Graham Park, the promenade, the Otumba Beach expansion as well as Neenah Avenue getting repaved, Ward predicts 2021 will be a great year for Sturgeon Bay.
The Graham Park project broke ground in June of 2020.
