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.
