Those waiting over five years to climb up Eagle Tower again will have to do so a little longer. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced on Wednesday that construction delays were to blame for Eagle Tower not opening to the public on Friday as originally planned. Earlier this month the DNR gave its blessing for observation towers and playgrounds could reopen after being closed due to the pandemic. Steve Strucely from the Friends of Peninsula State Park expressed his disappointment in the news, but says we all just have to be patient a little longer.
The DNR did not release an anticipated reopening date for Eagle Tower. The Friends of the Peninsula State Park is also excited for the day the DNR allows for buildings inside state parks to reopen after the group invested thousands of dollars in improvements for its nature center.
