Friends of Peninsula State Park planning an inclusive playground

You might have noticed a missing structure at Nicolet Bay Beach in the Peninsula State Park after the old playground was taken down. The structure was removed for everyone's safety because it rotted and became overall unsafe. The Friends of Peninsula State Park have set out to build a new playground in its place that will be all-inclusive. The Friends secretary Judy Ortiz details what the inclusive playground brings.



Ortiz says the Friends of Peninsula State Park's mission is to make sure that everyone can enjoy the parks, and with the new playground, the ramp on the Eagle Tower, and the more accessible Nature center, their work has proved successful. The construction is set to begin in the Spring of 2022, with hopes of completion for the summer season. A lot of the money going towards the playground is coming from donations.  A donor has agreed to match $40,000 of dollars raised to support the Friends' goal. If you would like to donate to the cause, more information can be found here.
