Peninsula State Park looks to build new playground

The Friends of Peninsula State Park have set their eyes on Nicolet Beach for one of their next big endeavors. A playground located near the beach area was recently removed due to its deterioration over time. The Friends group is hoping to raise $80,000 to build a new playground on the site with more modern conveniences. That includes a rubberized play surface and equipment usable for people of all physical abilities. Even with all the other amenities the park has to offer, Friends of Peninsula State Park Business Manager Steve Strucely says visiting families still want a playground for their kids.

Strucely says things have not slowed down for their park improvement efforts as they work to install interpretative signs at the newly reopened Eagle Tower and build an amphitheater near the nature center. He hopes that the nature center will be allowed to be open in the coming weeks so they could host different programming events later in the year.
