Peninsula, Whitefish Dunes state parks get money for repairs

Your travels through Peninsula State Park and on the Old Baldy Boardwalk will get an upgrade in the near future after the State Building Commission approved over $28 million in improvements across the state.


Nearly $2 million will go towards eight miles of roadway at Peninsula State Park. Peninsula State Park Superintendent Eric Hyde called it a capstone project.

The State Building Commission, which counts Senator Andre Jacque among its members, also awarded a grant to the Friends of Whitefish Dunes State Park for $6,516 to repair the Old Baldy Boardwalk. The boardwalk help lead hikers to the state park’s tallest dune “Old Baldy,” which stands at 93 feet tall. The grant was a part of $477,000 in matching funds awarded to 18 non-profit organizations.
