Improvements are coming to two Door County state parks after the legislature’s Joint Finance Committee approved earlier this week $1.5 billion for state construction projects. Under the approved plan, a new shower house at Peninsula State Park and a welcome center at Potawatomi State Park would be completed. Close to $630 million of the budget is going towards improvements at UW schools like Green Bay’s planned multi-use technology and education center. It is good news for Friends of Potawatomi State Park President Scott Bader, who says a new structure was needed.
Bader added it also allows the Friends group to focus on other projects like the pavilion they are building near the recently opened all-accessible fishing pier. The organization is approximately $25,000 shy of making the pavilion a reality. It was also another dose of good news for Potawatomi State Park, which last month learned that $5 million was being committed towards the restoration of its observation tower.
